A sore throat may develop as a result of several different issues, the most common being viral infections like colds and flu (influenza). Throat soreness is also frequently associated with strep throat, a highly contagious condition caused by group A Streptococcus bacteria. Some people can find relief from their symptoms with self-care measures like gargling salt water or sucking on soothing throat drops, but these home remedies don’t always prove effective. Be sure to visit a physician for treatment if your sore throat is severe, persists for more than a few days, or is accompanied by:
- Trouble breathing or swallowing
- A fever higher than 101 degrees Fahrenheit
- An earache
- A skin rash
- Swelling in the neck
- Bloody saliva or phlegm

Our center features a clinical lab that allows us to quickly test for strep throat and other conditions. Depending on what is to blame for your throat problems, treatment may involve antibiotics or other medicines to address discomfort and related symptoms.
