Strep throat sucks lol...what do you do to eat?

This isn't the first time i have had it and it isn't the worst but man oh man does it make you feel like crap! What kinds of things did you manage to keep down when you had strep throat? What doesn't irritate it? I did ice cream but honestly it was a little heavy. I tried broth but ewww lol. Any suggestions?

  • The drug store sells a spray that will numb your throat so you can swallow and eat. Make Jello and DONT put it in the fridge. You can drink it that way.

  • Try a sorbet, popsicles, jello, anything cold and smooth will feel good on your throat. Nothing acid based like tomato soup though, that's no fun trust me.

  • You should gargle with salt water, it will ease the pain of your tonsils. I usually drink hot tea and soft foods.

  • Jello, ice cream, fruit juices, pudding, rice, mashed potatoes, anything soft that will go down easy, or melt.
