Strep Throat Treatment

Strep Throat Treatment

Strep throat is a bacterial infection that is much more common among children than adults. Strep throat’s symptoms can be very similar to a common cold with coughs, fever, and sore throat. That’s what makes it very difficult to properly diagnose on your own. If being left untreated, strep throat might bring complications.

Strep throat is different from a sore throat

While most of the symptoms are similar, strep throat is much more serious than a sore throat if being left untreated or treated poorly. A sore throat is just a scratchy and irritated feeling that goes away after a few days. Strep throat is caused by bacteria that can grow in your throat and makes it much more painful.


Common symptoms of strep throat include high fever, swollen lymph nodes, and hectic coughs. Additionally, the tonsils can be red or white.

AFC Urgent Care Swampscott has state-of-the-art facilities and equipment to provide the best urgent care experiences to our patients. Our providers are well-trained to detect strep throat and administer an appropriate treatment plan. Our center is open 7 days a week, during extended hours. For any further questions, give us a call at (781) 691-9366.
