My son had it twice when he was little. And of course I caught it from him, for us it only consisted of a high fever and the worst sore throat possibly imaginable. I'm 29 and I'd never had such a sore throat in my life and I've had the bronchitis, pneumonia, strep a bazillion times, it was just awful. My baby actually handled it better than I did, I caught it from him after he was mostly through it and I couldn't believe how bad it was, and felt so bad for him because it was just the sores in his throat, so I really didn't know what was going on with him for the first few days till I took him in. It's just a virus like the cold that has to run it's course. I still don't know how my son caught it, he was pretty sheltered and I was pretty anal about germs with him back then, lol.
