    This is like the third time i've been sick this winter [​IMG] I had to stay home for school AGAIN! I felt like i was getting sick last night, but today i woke up and could not breath out of my noise and my throat was so swollen, it was close to swelling closed. that little dangly thing (idk what its called!) was so swollen it was laying on my tongue and was taking up most of the view into my throat. i could barely eat or drink so i just slept about 6 or 7 hours worth of naps today. now its so red its purple-ish and swelling up again [​IMG] it also had white specks. go away sore throat!! anybody else sick? this winter's been a bad one for me!

    Quote:Try gargling with warm salt water, that may help. Suck on ice chips too. If it gets too bad you may want to have it cultured for strept. I hope you feel better soon. [​IMG]

    Are you sure you're not having an allergic reaction to something? That swelling sounds like it.

    The 'white specks' is infection. Mine does that with strep EVERY time. You need antibiotics kid! I had strep for 3 solid months when I was 16, and have never had it since. But BOY DO I REMEMBER!!!!! Keep fluids down, and gargling with salt water is a good idea. Salt is a natural antiseptic. Now get on it, and try not to share!!! [​IMG] I hope you feel better soon dear [​IMG]

    [​IMG] Oh thats not nice!

    Get a humidifier that will help some - make the air more moist and easier to breath. I bought two this year - with our freezing temps and having a fire and heaters going - we need it or we get all snotty! [​IMG]
