 Anyone ever tried this? did it work for you?

"Dr. Sears Clue: Citrus juices, such as orange juice, often “burn” the sore throat caused by a virus but are usually not painful to strep throat."

He did end up getting tested. I gave him OJ with his sore throat and he said it didn't hurt at all and he wanted more. Later I took him in to get tested and he had all the classic signs. It came back positive for strep.

Viruses usually have a lot of sinus drainage and it causes the throat to be raw. Strep is an infection in the tonsils and throat, but it isn't open and raw. So when you drink the citrus it burns with the virus and not with the strep. Seems to work ;)
