What is the difference between sore throat and strep throat?
A sore throat and a strep throat have similar symptoms, but one is caused by a specific virus that infects a patient’s respiratory system. Beta-hemolytic Streptococcus, or “strep,” causes a viral infection that can lead to a series of debilitating symptoms including coughing, congestion, dry throat, sniffling, and throat pain/inflammation of the throat. Conversely, a sore throat is when your throat becomes inflamed from general infections and excessive strain/physical exhaustion.
Thankfully, AFC Urgent Care Fairfield provides strep throat treatment for specific strep symptoms and conditions. If you have questions please contact our team ASAP to learn more!
