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.
