Sore throat / strep throat
Your throat is hurting – is it strep? The most common cause of a sore throat is a viral infection, such as a cold. Allergies, postnasal drip and cigarette smoke can also make your throat hurt. When a sore throat is caused by bacteria, you may have strep throat. Strep is contagious and requires antibiotic treatment. We can do a strep test, and get you on the right treatment plan.
