When experiencing symptoms, it’s important to be medically diagnosed. Strep throat is caused by a bacterial infection of the throat and tonsils. When you visit AFC Urgent Care Agoura Hills with suspected strep, a medical provider will guide you through the easy process of diagnostic testing. Typically, they will collect a sample of the tonsils for testing. Our center is equipped with labs on-site, meaning you’ll receive quick and accurate results all within the timeframe of your visit.
Once diagnosed, there are strep throat treatment options at AFC Agoura Hills to help alleviate your pain quickly. Since strep throat is a bacterial infection, antibiotic treatment is effective in the treatment process. Our providers can prescribe the appropriate oral antibiotics to treat strep. In most cases, symptoms will improve within two days of taking antibiotics. We also offer supportive care and advice on how to get relief at home– including over-the-counter medications, rest, and hydration.
