Possible Strep Throat~ Hope this helps! Ahha Moment!

Hi Everyone,

I woke this morning with terrible sore throat, swollen glands in my
neck and generally not feeling well. Lots of people around me had
strep weeks ago and I thought I had managed to avoid it.

Maybe I have but, after feeling so miserable all day, I had an ah ha moment!

I remember as a little girl that my Great Grandmother (nurse,old school) use
to paint my throat with Iodine if I exhibited a sore throat. I use to gag
and gag but I would get over it within 24 hours or so. Now I also was made
drink her "special tea" and stay in bed with lots of blankets! Have no idea
what was in the tea!

In any event, my ahha moment, came this afternoon, (I have 500mL bottle of 5% Lugols)and so, I put maybe 1/8cup of water in glass and two full droppers of Lugols and
gargled with it. It stopped the pain almost immediately, tasted AWFUL! But, I figured I would suck it up and gargle the entire glass! I'm not brave enough to
stick a long Q-tip with Iodine down my throat...dont think I could manage.

In any event, I plan to gargle 2 more times tonight and on and off all day tomorrow.

Wish me luck, as I sure do not want to go on antibotics!
