A sore throat can be very uncomfortable. Get relief from your sore throat with a quick trip to the MinuteClinic at 313 E Townline Rd. A sore throat is normally one of the first indicators of a cold. This will usually go away on its own. If not, you may have strep throat. While viruses, allergies, or irritants cause most sore throats, streptococcus bacteria (group A strep) causes strep throat. This is contagious and requires antibiotic treatment. Don’t worry about what all this is going to cost – compared to urgent care, we’re a great choice for your budget, as you can save 40% or more at MinuteClinic. Come in today and our providers will assess your symptoms and refer you to get a strep throat test if needed.
Having a sore throat and having strep throat are two separate things. Strep throat is an illness while having a sore throat may just be the cause of a virus. Some signs of strep throat may include escalated throat pain without a cough, swollen or red tonsils sometimes containing pus, pain when swallowing, fever, rash, nausea, dark red spots on the roof of the mouth, or swollen lymph nodes in your neck. If you have any of these symptoms, it may be in your best interest to go to MinuteClinic and visit one of our providers. While it is possible to have these symptoms but not have strep throat, you still may have a viral infection or another illness that requires treatment. Our MinuteClinic providers will assess your symptoms and create a treatment plan to help reduce discomfort and promote recovery.
During your MinuteClinic visit, your provider will help you understand the various treatment options specific to your symptoms. They also may suggest OTC medications for pain relief. Some of those may include anti-inflammatory agents or numbing spray and lozenges. The anti-inflammatory medications will help to reduce inflamed, swollen tissue. The sprays and lozenges will help to relieve pain and relax the throat. After your visit, you will be encouraged to drink ample water to stay hydrated and use a straw to make the liquid more comfortable to swallow. Our nurse practitioners and physician assistants will send you off with even more tips to help you in your recovery! Walk into CVS MinuteClinic any time to schedule an appointment and quickly get the sore throat relief you need.
