Urgent Care Clinic for Strep Throat Treatment in Galveston, TX

While sore throats may indicate allergies, mild viral infections, or the common cold, they can also be caused by strep throat. Strep throat is a severe, persistent sore throat that results from infection with A streptococcus bacteria. It is a contagious bacterial infection that can lead to complications if not treated promptly. If you think you have strep throat and need quick treatment in Galveston, Texas, turn to Affinity Urgent Care. We offer professional medical care for children, teens, and adults on a walk-in basis.

Strep Throat Symptoms

Some symptoms of strep throat include a severe sore throat that develops suddenly and persists for longer than 48 hours. This sore throat may make it difficult and extremely painful to swallow. If you have strep throat, you may also experience:

  • Muscle aches, chills, or a fever
  • Swollen tonsils that appear bright red or patchy
  • Tender or swollen lymph nodes
  • Nausea or vomiting

It is important to seek treatment if you have any of the above symptoms. Untreated strep throat can spread to the tonsils, sinuses, and ears, causing serious complications.

Treatments for Strep Throat

As strep throat is a bacterial infection, it must be treated with a course of antibiotics. We will perform a strep throat test and, if positive, recommend the proper antibiotics to kill the bacteria causing the infection. There are also ways to relieve pain and discomfort in the meantime, including gargling with warm salt water, over-the-counter pain relievers, and throat lozenges.

"We have a special needs daughter who needed her foot looked at. Thankful that Affinity accepted her Medicaid first of all. Staff was nice, did not have a long wait, doctor was knowledgeable and understanding with our daughter, which means a lot. She was able to get x-rays done on her foot and received the results before we left. A great place to go on short notice."
