I had so much planned, people to see, and food to eat, but NO...after a visit to the Walgreen's clinic, antibiotics, and a sore-throat remedy that sounds disgusting...I'm starting to feel better.
The sore throat remedy as listed on my treatment plan:
Mix equal parts of liquid (children's) Benadryl
and liquid Maalox or Mylanta antacid
plus a few drops of anbesol-
swish/gargle every 2-3 hrs as needed
Sounds terrible, but totally helped. I must have been hurting to try something so weird, but it works!!
