I went to the doctors today I don't have strep or tonsillitis. But I do have severe throat irritation. I have some sort of virus that has settled in my throat. Basically I just have to ride it out. I have tried tea, honey and not talking. Nothing is working! I have had it a week now. DH is doing a good job of taking care of me but I have run out of ideas on what else to do.

i had something similar last summer. it was only on one side and pretty much the worst pain ever. it hurt to even open my mouth. mine took about 7 days to clear up..the doctor told me it could take up to 10. i used those numbing sprays which helped, but the effect didnt last long. i wish i could help you more but nothing really seemed to help.

Have you tried a lollipop?

J/K.....the chloraseptic spray helps me a little, but mostly I just rode it out. I know how bad it sucks. Feel better soon!

I've had it since Sunday and I haven't felt any better since, you should go to the doctors also and get some anti viral meds
