Strep throat

HENRICO, VA (WWBT) - Dr. Patrick Woodward is dealing with strep throat at Parham Primary Care.

Strep throat is different than a common sore throat.

More often it is accompanied by fever and swollen glands and foul breath as hallmarks. 

Treatment is aimed at two targets: alleviating symptoms and getting rid of the bacteria. See your doctor for help with both.
