Effective Strep Throat Treatment in Texas City, TX

A sore throat can be a symptom of many illnesses, including mild viral infections, the common cold, or even allergies. However, a severe, persistent sore throat may be a sign of strep throat—an infection caused by A streptococcus bacteria. Strep throat is contagious and won’t resolve independently; it must be treated by medical professionals. If you believe you have strep throat, the team at Affinity Urgent Care can help. We provide strep throat treatment for individuals in Texas City, Texas, on a walk-in basis for prompt symptom relief.

Common Strep Throat Symptoms

Strep throat presents with a sudden, severe sore throat lasting longer than 48 hours. The sore throat resulting from strep throat makes it painful and difficult to swallow. Strep throat can also cause the following:

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

If you experience any of the above symptoms, it’s essential to visit a professional for treatment. Leaving strep throat untreated can lead to complications, and the infection can continue to spread to the tonsils, ears, and sinuses.

How Is Strep Throat Treated?

Strep throat is a bacterial infection, so it needs to be treated with antibiotics. Our medical team will test you for strep throat when you visit our clinic. If your test is positive, we will recommend the proper course of antibiotics to eliminate the bacteria causing the infection. In addition, we can provide ways to relieve your pain and discomfort as you heal. These methods include over-the-counter pain relievers, gargling with warm salt water, 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."
