What can you eat when you have strep throat? Soft foods and frozen treats are recommended to soothe the pain of strep throat. Avoid alcohol and spicy foods which can dry out your throat and lead to further irritation. If you are congested, consider passing on dairy products which can contribute to mucus production. Also steer clear of sugary and acidic foods.

FastMed Urgent Care is staffed with experienced professionals who can evaluate your sore and advise the best course of action to get you feeling better. Our clinics are open every day and we can perform a rapid strep test if you suspect you have strep throat. Combined with on-site lab work we can determine if you have strep throat in no less than ten minutes. Check out for a location near you.
