Strep throat is a common and contagious infection caused by streptococcus bacteria.  Strep throat is most common in children, but it affects people of all ages.

Strep throat is usually treated with an antibiotic.  If one is prescribed to you by AFC Doctors Express Urgent Care Indianapolis, we highly encourage you to always finish the medication.  To put  your symptoms at ease, a pain reliever or NSAID can help reduce the swelling and relieve the pain.

If you think you or a loved one may have come down with strep throat, call us today. The board certified doctors at AFC Doctors Express Urgent Care Indianapolis can test for strep throat in our state-of-the-art center.  We have an on-site lab to perform diagnostic testing such as a strep test.  We are a walk-in clinic, so appointments are not required.
