The Children's Chloroseptic comes in a yummy grape flavour.

Good to know, though!

I have been taking exactly that spread of the Tylenol.

Except that I can't remember whether I took certain doses or thought about it. So then I've had to play it safe and try not to swallow for the next six hours!

Poor baby! DAY FIVE!?!?

Yes. I suddenly realized I had never made an icon for "this totally sucks" situations.

1. liquid children's motrin
2. liquid benadryl (preferably same general flavor)
3. water (optional)

mix 1+2 and add 3 sparingly as needed for consistency. Gargle a shot glass full for ~2 minutes. Swallow the same amount every four hours or so, gargling and spitting in between as needed. You should get ~50-75% relief of symptoms.

If that doesn't work, follow-up with whiskey and you won't care how your throat feels. ;)

A little from Column A, a little from Column B. LOL!

That sounds genius. Except that I have this vision in my head of liquid benadryl as pink lotion I used for poison ivy and that's not for ingestion. (and gargling seems suspect) I trust, of course, that liquid benadryl is something other.

I was wishing for cheap medical advice, but I'd been watching too much Grey's Anatomy to remember anyone I knew myself!

Sooooooooooooooo sorry. Are you sure it's not Strep?

The symptoms seemed a perfect match to what was written and the pictures on the all-wise Wikipedia. Definitely pain coming from the tonsils than the back of the throat or such, but thanks for making me make sure!

feel better! *hug*

Thanks! I think maybe it's starting to run its course.

Thanks, Maj! I hope your Senior Week is the best! Soak up all the time you can with everyone.

Poor you! Feel better soon.

(Oh, and I assume you've tried gargling with aspirin?)

Never heard that one, either!

Why Pittsburgh?

Because it's an industrial-age city that fits the industrial-age/1950s movie concept that lent its language to the description.

Got it.
