Arlington Strep Throat Treatment

Make Sure Your Sore Throat Isn’t Strep!

Strep throat often has some of the same symptoms as the cold and flu, but in this case, it is caused by a specific type of bacteria called streptococcus. While the pain associated with strep throat often feels like a sore throat caused by other illnesses, it can lead to serious complications. This is why it is imperative you get checked right away if you have a sore throat that lasts longer than one or two days.

Strep throat is highly contagious and may carry the following symptoms:

  • Difficulty and painful swallowing
  • Red and swollen tonsils
  • Sensitive lymph nodes in the neck

Please give us a call at (817) 799-7273 or come into our urgent care clinic today if you have any of the symptoms of a common cold, flu, or strep throat.

Differences Between Sore & Strep Throat

Strep throat is generally more severe and persistent than a typical sore throat. Unlike a sore throat caused by colds and allergies, strep throat is usually accompanied by other symptoms like headaches, nausea, and fever.

Unlike most sore throats, a strep throat will not clear up on its own. In order to treat a strep throat, you will need a prescription for antibiotics from a doctor. The antibiotic treatment for strep throat is very effective and will usually clear up symptoms within 48 hours so long as you take them as prescribed. Be sure to continue taking your prescription for the full time period your doctor recommends. Even if symptoms have ceased, it does not necessarily mean that the infection has been completely wiped out yet.
