any of you try to beat strep throat without going to the Dr?
 
I don't want to go to the damn Dr, but I think I might have strep. Can anyone share some home remedies /experiences?

Why would you want to? Go to the clinic, get an antibiotic, and you'll feel better by tomorrow.

Yeah, go to the ****ing doctor and get antibiotics! Unless you're a chemist than create your own.

Take some Tussin.

It cures everything.

Gargle with hot salt water. Frequently. Drink tea (green, white, etc.) that is heavy in antioxidants. Take lots of C and E ... especially E.

Gargle epsom salt water. Drink pissassloads of water, and lots of vitamins.

Or go to the damn doctor.

Remember "Win one for the 'Gipper'?" Strep throat killed that conditioned athlete. Go to the doctor. Urgent care or Walgreens or OSCO have people that can prescribe drugs to kill that nasty infection... if, in fact, that's the problem.

I never go to the doc for strep. I just eat a lot of moldy bread.

There is none-you need antibiotics and if you have a friend with any leftover unexpired pills then you have your out

Don't mess around with strep hit up the doc.

Get healthy there is a home game the 24th asshole.

WhiteWhale 10-05-2012 03:59 PM

Yeah... don't try it. Just get the meds. It may be another kind of tonsil infection.

Once when I was 17 I thought I had strep, but only one tonsil was swelled so I figured it would work itself out. When I did got to the doctor (because the swelling was closing my windpipe) he gave me some drugs and lectured me about tonsil infections.

See, since the infection had started working it's way down my throat, I could have been in deep shit had I waited another week or so. He said the only thing they can do at that point is a surgery that requires making an incision through your neck and lancing it. The survival rate on that is 60/40.

So, yeah. Don't wait to see how deep the infection can get...

I've had strep too many times. If you are not sure, you don't have it imo. That shit will wreck ya.
