Once strep throat has been diagnosed, there are treatment options available to help you feel better fast. We may prescribe the appropriate oral antibiotics that can rid the bacteria in your throat and tonsils. Typically, symptoms improve within two days of taking antibiotics. Additionally, patients with strep throat can take over-the-counter medicines, drink a lot of water, get plenty of rest, and try gargling with salt water to reduce inflammation at home.
