Sore throat rememdy

Over Christmas I got strep throat.  For more than a week, I had been nursing Taylor back to health, she recovered but not without a trip to the doc and $65 in topical antibiotics.  Her rash may have been caused by strep bacteria...which I guess I got!! 

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!!

  1. I was just going to say that I bet Taylor was a carrier of the strep. I've seen that rash TOO many times. Glad you are starting to feel better.
