i rang and made a docs appointment, i may need a anti biotic ad there a white bits. its making me sick to, you know the way if something goes too far back in your mouth and you gag? thats how it feels. have to go get bp checked and that anyway.

manuca honey is the best for a sore throat. its totally natural so there's no worries in taking it. you'd get it in a good chemist or health shop. id well recommend it - i swear by it.

Like moondance said honey.i usually heat a bit of milk and add honey and do this several times a day. I'm not into anti-biotics pregnant or not. MInd yourself and have a nice hot spicy dish. xxxxxxxxxxx

Hi Beanies girl B2B and a pharmacist to boot! Strepsils are no problem (just not the PLus or Intensive) and paracetamol, but if you reckon you need an antibiotic, go see doc. Many are quite safe in pregnancy so no worries!
