We offer a wide array of treatment services to patients on a walk-in basis, including sore throat treatment.
How We Treat Sore Throats
Because sore throat treatment methods will vary depending on what’s causing the pain, it’s important that we learn what’s at the root of a patient’s symptoms. For instance, because strep throat is a bacterial infection, strep throat treatment typically involves taking antibiotics. On the other hand, throat pain caused by something else—such as a viral infection, allergies, dry air, or an irritant—might be relieved by throat infection remedies like gargling with salt water, sucking on a lozenge, or sipping hot water with lemon. After asking you about your symptoms and performing an examination, we’ll be able to recommend sore throat remedies that are customized to your specific needs.
