What Is Strep Throat And What Are The Symptoms?

Strep throat is a bacterial infection that can give you similar symptoms similar to a common cold. The virus that specifically causes strep throat is streptococcus pyogenes and can lead to a variety of seasonal illness symptoms including:

  • Swollen/sore throat
  • Throat pain
  • Headache
  • Nausea and vomiting in young children
  • Tiny red spots in back of throat
  • Fever

Difference Between Strep Throat And Sore Throat

A sore throat is likely a symptom of a strep throat infection and is also the result of other seasonal illnesses. A strep throat is a specific viral infection that causes many illness symptoms.

Patients may confuse both conditions since early symptoms of each are similar, which means that testing and treatment at an urgent care center is the best course of action to determine medical care.

How Strep Throat Is Treated At Afc Urgent Care Southcenter

Patients that are diagnosed with strep throat need to first visit our urgent care center to get testing for other seasonal illnesses. Our test determines if a patient has strep throat or another illness.

When strep is diagnosed in the patient, an urgent care provider provides symptom relief and treatment through antibiotics and other preventive medications. Our providers will also help coordinate future at-home care with suggestions on rest, at-home treatment, and when to book follow-up care.
