Common Treatment for Strep Throat
Urgent care strep throat treatment is available at Vermont Urgent Care to cure the infection while relieving symptoms and preventing the spread of the infection.
Your doctor will prescribe you an oral antibiotic if you are diagnosed with strep throat. The duration and severity of the infection will be reduced if taken within 48 hours of contracting the illness. You should start feeling better within one to two days.
Pain relievers like acetaminophen and ibuprofen are available to reduce pain and fever.
Home Remedies for Strep Throat Pain
Your doctor will advise you to get plenty of rest and to drink plenty of water. It is important to keep your sore throat moist to prevent dehydration and ease swallowing. Be sure to eat soothing foods that are easy to swallow and to gargle warm salt water to help relieve the pain. If available, use a humidifier; the added moisture in the air will ease your discomfort.
