Is It Strep Throat?

If you have a sore throat, you may be questioning whether it’s strep. Unlike throat soreness caused by a cold virus, strep throat is caused by a bacterial infection. As such, strep throat treatment often involves the use of prescription antibiotics. Although only a trained medical professional can accurately diagnose strep throat, there are certain signs that you can watch out for, such as:

  • Pain when swallowing
  • Tonsil swelling and redness
  • White patches on the tonsils or in the throat
  • Red spots on the back of the roof of the mouth
  • Swollen lymph nodes in the neck
  • A fever of at least 101 degrees Fahrenheit
  • Chills
  • Body aches
  • Loss of appetite

Don’t Wait to Get the Care You Need

"The overall care I received was excellent! I also appreciate your affiliation with Yale New Haven Hospital."

Derby, CT

"Throughout the visit I felt like the staff really cared. The Doctor took his time talking with me about my symptoms, and I felt like he listened to all my concerns and took that into consideration when recommending the right treatment. Thank you!"

Hamden, CT

"I had to take my son in for an ear infection following a sudden change in temperament at daycare. He was inconsolable the entire car ride but when we got there and by the time we left this care facility he was back to his normal happy go lucky little two year old boy. I highly recommend PhysicianOne Urgent Care."

Westwood, MA

"I wanted to take a moment to thank you for the attention you gave me last week. My son was started on antibiotics and ear drops. Within 24 hours he began to feel better. The poor kid had been going to school in tears because he was afraid of missing any more days, but feeling (and looking) just awful! He's not been able to even think about lacrosse practice, but thanks to starting him on antibiotics, he was thrilled to return to practice today."
