Best Meds

Poor FI is home sick today with a terrible sore throat and stuffy head. He didnt sleep a wink last night and couldnt swallow at all. I feel so bad, I wish I was home with him right now. It was so sad leaving him this morning, I just wanted to jump back in bed and rub his head.He says it feels like "swallowing razor blades." I'm going to pick up some OTC meds to bring home to him, which are the best for those symptoms? He's not coughing.I hope he gets better soon and I dont catch it bc we are going away on Friday :(TIA girls!

    aww Poor guy!! I have this same sort of bug right now... I can swallow but my throat is itchy, my nose is runny and my eyes are watery. I also have that awful congestion headache.. stinks...I think definitely some kind of tamiflu or something maybe even a Zpac depending on if he's coughing anything up... aww... poor thing!!!!!

    Definitely have him see a dr. Antibiotics are the best, I have to take amoxycillin instead of z-pack depending if it's bacterial or viral. Sounds like the beginning of bronchitis or strep. I get the razor blades feeling when my tonsils get inflammed. =*( Lots of clear liquids. Broth will help.

    eek, feel better Mister Scott :( i've been sick for like 90 years, lol. I finally started a Z-Pack two days ago and I'm feeling BETTER!! PRAISE MOSES!!also, tylenol or motrin (acetaminophen or ibuprofen) should help with the pain.

    I don't know much about meds, but a trick that always work for me is to take a hot shower, and get back in bed. When you stay in bed all day you're staying in your own pool of germs! Plus I always feel better after a shower, so it helps me with getting better.Orange juice! TONS! Hot lemonade always soothes a sore throat. Hope he gets better :)

    Court, I cant believe you are STILL SICK! Holy canoli! But glad you're starting to feel better! I want to leave work like NOW and go home...I might leave at 4. I just bought the entire row of sore throat meds at CVS. Anything that said sore throat went in the bag...I should really buy stock in CVS. Thanks for the advice and well wished girls!

    not sure on the meds, but I've tried gurgling warm salt water(just add salt to water...duh) and it soothes my throat for a brief time. I agree the vicks on the chest is great.I hope he feels better!
