  • I had it in college. I took Benedryl pills and rubbed on Benedryl cream. And the gave me sulfa drugs or whatever, maybe anti9biotics. I slept for two days from the meds. Was fine after.

  • Antibiotics will take care of it. There is nothing to be worried about anymore. My son had it when he was 2 and it was gone 24 hours after he started the antibiotic.
