Urgent Care Clinic Offering Strep Throat Treatment in Hitchcock, TX

If you are experiencing a sore throat and need prompt medical care in Hitchcock, Texas, Affinity Urgent Care can help. While a sore throat can be a sign of allergies, mild viral infections, or the common cold, a severe sore throat may be caused by an infection with A streptococcus bacteria, also known as strep throat. Strep throat is a contagious infection and won’t get better on its own—it’s imperative to visit a medical professional to receive proper treatment. Our team can provide strep throat treatment to get you on the road to recovery.

What Are Some Strep Throat Symptoms?

The most common symptom of strep throat is a severe, persistent sore throat that lasts longer than 48 hours. This sore throat makes it difficult and painful to eat and swallow. If you have strep throat, you may also experience the following:

  • Fever or chills
  • Muscle aches
  • Nausea or vomiting
  • Swollen, bright red or patchy tonsils
  • Tender, swollen lymph nodes

It’s critical to visit a healthcare professional for treatment if you have the above symptoms. If left untreated, strep throat can spread to the ears, tonsils, and sinuses.

How Strep Throat Is Treated

As strep throat is a bacterial infection, it must be treated with antibiotics. When you visit Affinity Urgent Care, our team will test you for strep throat and provide you with the correct course of antibiotics to eliminate the bacteria and resolve your infection. We will also give you advice to alleviate your pain and discomfort, such as over-the-counter pain relievers, throat lozenges, and warm salt water gargles.

"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."
