MCareMD : What we treat

What is this?


Strep throat is an infection of the pharynx, larynx, and/or tonsils caused by a specific bacteria called Streptococcus pyogenes or group A streptococcus.  It’s highly contagious and can spread through air droplets when someone coughs, sneezes, or shares food or drink.  



What are the symptoms?


Strep loves the throat, so most of the symptoms will involve certain structures of the throat.  The most common complaint is pain with difficulty swallowing.  Usually, the throat is red, swollen, and lined with pus.  The patient can be hoarse, but not always.  The patient may also complain of constitutional symptoms such as body aches, chills, fever, and fatigue.  



Can it be treated?


 In most cases, strep throat responds very nicely to a regimen involving an antibiotic.



 

How can MCare M.D. help?


If you think you have strep throat, don’t be afraid to tell us everything during your meeting with your MCare M.D. doctor.  We want to know.  Be prepared to tell us when, where, how long, what color…everything.  Don’t worry.  Everything you tell us is completely confidential.  If the doctor thinks that you have an infection that can be treated with prescription medication he or she will send an order to the pharmacy of your choice instantly.
