I am a mother of three young children 7, 5, &4 who had colds last weeks. Initially I thought I was just coming down with the same. Since friday night, Sat., Sun, and now Monday I have had the following sysmptoms. Swollen glands, extreme pain swallowing, flu like symptoms, cold sweats, fever 101-102, fatiques, body aches,sweating, and some pus/mucus from my glands. I have not felt like this ever before. I'm not sure if I should wait it out or go to my doctor??? Anyone have any suggestions for homeopathic remedies?? I have been taking airborne, eichenacea, goldenseal, and garlic. Drinking lots of juice, water, and throat coat tea. Help My children need me!! Thanks alot.

  • This might be an "old wives tale", but growing up it always worked for me. I get frequent bouts of the flu - - which does not have to include stomach symptoms...usually I get the same symptoms as you.Anyways, my mother also boiled apple cider vinegar on the stove, and as gross as it was to breathe it in, I did it and it helped me sinus/sore throat problems. Try it?

Thanks alot.its possibly u have tonsilitis.U can check by standing in front of a mirror, open ur mouth and check ur back area of ur mouth. Your tonsils/ glands will appear to have white dots on them. They are a white/milky/yellowish type of colour, that might even sometimes look like puss. It actually might look quite awful, so dont be alarmed at this is quite common.I have had it before, so i went to the doctor and he prescribed me penicillyn. (careful with penicillyn, as a lot of people are elergic to it, and is a very strong medication.)Took the medication till the packet finished. I believe it took a week or 2 to get back 100%.Though, my best advice would be to see your doctor. Im only guessing and assuming and i might be totally wrong.I hope maybe i have helped you a little with your condition... But please, SEE YOUR DOCTOR!!good luck :)
