Help for viral pharyngitis?
I've had a killer sore throat since Saturday. It is not strep, MD thinks it is viral pharyngitis in response to a nasty cold that is going around. It could take 10 days to get better. The pain I am having rivals when I had my tonsils out a few years ago and then I was given Rx pain meds.
MD offered me codiene but I won't take that while breastfeeding. Salt water gargle helps for about 3min and warm liquids are tolerable - almost. I am breastfeeding so I have no choice but to keep eating (may never eat yogurt again) and drinking.
Anyone have any suggestions?
