Whether you require treatment for strep throat or a viral infection like a cold or the flu, we can prescribe sore throat remedies that are appropriate for your specific needs.

What Causes Throat Soreness?

If you have a sore throat, you’re probably wondering what caused it. There are a number of potential reasons, including:

  • Viruses like the common cold and the flu
  • Bacterial infections like strep throat
  • Allergies
  • Nasal drainage
  • Gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD)
  • Exposure to smoke or air pollution
  • Low humidity
  • Yelling

If your throat soreness persists for more than a few days, it’s important to seek treatment from a trained medical provider. Treatment will vary depending on what’s causing your throat pain—for example, antibiotics are typically prescribed for bacterial infections, but not pain caused by a virus—so it’s critical that you receive an accurate diagnosis.

"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."
