Sore Throat

Sore throats are very commonly caused by viruses and the cause can be diagnosed through a Throat Swab Test to ascertain if any bacterial infections exist. During the winter, a rise in sore throats, colds and flu are common.

Harmony Health and Travel Clinic offers a Throat Swab Test that identifies the bacteria (Group A streptococcus) that infects the back of the throat, giving you the sore throat, which when severe (pharyngitis) can be treated with antibiotics which otherwise are not-required for a viral cause.

Harmony Health and Travel Clinic offers same day appointments for the diagnosis, testing and treatment of sore throats.
