Things To Know About Strep Throat

So what exactly is Strep?​

Strep throat is a highly contagious bacterial infection caused by the  bacteria called Steptococcus pyogenes – also called group A streptococcus. The typical symptoms are an inflamed and sore throat, which makes swallowing painful.

Typically children are more prone to get strep than adults.

What are the typical symptoms?

Strep throats symptoms are similar to soar throat symptoms, including​

  • Difficulty in swallowing.

  • Soreness in the throat.

  • Swollen lymph nodes.

  • Fever.

  • Body aches and feeling cold.

  • Red dots in the throat area.

How do you know that it's strep?

Many of these symptoms overlap with the regular sore throat and other viral infections. The only way to be sure is to do a strep test.

What does testing involve?

Rapid strep test: It involves a quick throat swab and within minutes the test can show the presence of the group A streptococcus bacteria. 

Throat culture: Sometimes the rapid strep test can come back as a negative but the medical team might suspect that you might have strep. So they would then perform a throat culture.

Why should I get tested?

If strep is left untreated the infection can lead to a variety of complications. Luckily, strep can be easily treated with antibiotics and reduce the likelihood of any such complications.

Here at Prognify Urgent Care we have trained medical professionals who encounter and treat strep throat frequently. So walk-in, call or book an online appointment and make sure that you or your loved one isn't suffering from a strep throat.
