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 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.
