Find out if your sore throat is something more serious
If you have a sore throat with other symptoms, including fever, headache, nausea, and others, it is possible that you have pharyngitis and tonsillitis. Pharyngitis and tonsillitis are infections that cause inflammation. If the tonsils are affected, it is called tonsillitis. If the throat is affected, it is called pharyngitis. Our capable providers can help you determine if you have either.
How do I know If I have strep throat?
Because strep throat shares many of its symptoms with other ailments, the best way to check for strep is by having a doctor test for it. If you are experiencing some of these common symptoms of strep, it would be wise to book an appointment to be checked:
- Sore throat
- Painful or difficult swallowing
- Swelling or tenderness of the glands in the neck
- Nausea or vomiting
- Skin rash
- Lack of appetite
- Tonsils that are swollen and red
- Patches of white on the tongue or throat
For the rapid strep screen, we will take a sample of cells from your tonsils and back of the throat and test it right in our office.
