Gotcha YT, don't worry. I'm pretty hip about when to use antibiotics and when not. I'm irritated that I was taking them without needing them. Trust me, I'm allergic to so many that I'm pretty careful about their use at all.

I didn't know the uncomfortably warm part, but it makes sense when I think about it. Thanks, I'll give that a go. I've been sucking back hot tea (herbal mostly) like there is no tomorrow.

Edit: YT, should I be wearing a scarf to keep my throat warm or would just raising my overall body temp do the trick. I'm thinking the latter.

yeah, that part of the reason infected areas get "Hot" it`s how we naturaly defend ourselves, I Used to know the name of the lil` suckers responsible for this action, but be sure, they ARE on your side :)

anti-pyretics are Not a good idea to be taking right now either (defeats the object and delays the inevitable).

aspirin, ibuprofen etc... not great.

Well at the moment I don't need the pain killers, but I tell you the last few days I sure did. I had a gargle that worked well, but I can't be using that at work as I need to be on the floor with the kiddos supervising, not in the bathroom gargling.

I'll wear sweaters for the next couple of days and hopefully kill those little boogers. If I weren't working I'd be swilling back the wine too. Purely for antiseptic reasons of course.

Chlorhexidine based gargles are great, even sorts out Gum or Tooth disease as well as internal applications (surgical) it`s a generaly good all-rounder :)

I`ll shut up now for a bit, I`m sure I must bore you all.

whoa! It's like I walked into a classroom!

here's my vent, and I'm sure I don't share it with anyone, but nevertheless, it's a vent for me.

It is sunny. And warm.

The forecast called for rain. They were wrong again, darn it! I love cold, dark rainy days!

I know I should be happy it's sunny....(but I get so happy and energized and motivated when it's rainy!) I'd move to Seattle, but I'm afraid dh's commute to work may be a bit long
