Differences between sore throat and strep throat

A sore throat and a strep throat are similar conditions that can confuse patients, but here is the easier way to distinguish either: a strep throat is one cause of a sore throat while sore throat may stem from multiple causes.

Strep throat is caused by the Streptococcus bacteria specifically, and can lead to many upper respiratory issues. Conversely, a sore throat may be caused by physical exhaustion as well as other viruses like the flu, common cold, or other seasonal illnesses

Some symptoms of strep throat and sore throat include include:

  • Severely Painful or Irritated Throat
  • Scratchiness and Difficulty Swallowing
  • Fever
  • Chills
  • Loss of Appetite
  • Nausea
  • Headache
  • Rash

What can I do to treat my sore throat? Why urgent care?

Patients can manage immediate sore throat symptoms by getting rest at home, drinking plenty of fluids, and using over-the-counter medications. However, those at-home treatments may not be enough to completely alleviate your sore throat symptoms. For lingering symptoms it makes the most sense to visit an urgent care center.

Urgent care professionals and our staff can provide the services to diagnose the cause of your sore throat and perform the necessary treatment options needed.

Schedule an appointment for immediate treatment of your sore throat. Set an appointment online, or walk in and be seen by a doctor in minutes.

AFC Urgent Care FAQs

  • When should I choose urgent care?

    If you’re dealing with a pressing, non-life-threatening medical issue and don’t want to see a doctor, urgent care could be for you. AFC walk-in clinics are able to see patients dealing with allergic reactions, broken bones, colds and flus, and much more.

  • Do I need insurance to visit AFC?

    Urgent care is for medical conditions that require prompt attention but do not pose an immediate threat to your health or life. Here is a simple rule of thumb: if your medical issues(s) are life threatening, call 911, or go directly to a hospital emergency room. If not, an urgent care center such as AFC is an excellent alternative.

  • How long will my visit take?

    The main advantage of choosing AFC is our short wait times – often under 15 minutes. The total length of your visit will depend on what you’re being seen for, but many patients can be in and out of our clinics in around 30 minutes.
