    I've been lousy with this all weekend and it hurts when I swallow...oooh err missus!

    I've tried gargling warm salt water and nearly wrenched up my chicken soup...what else can I do?

      www.patient.co.uk advises gargling with soluble aspirin - I don't know if it works though - but you should definitely try to drink as much water as possible and take paracetamol.  Hope you feel better soon.

        Cheers...paracetamol I've been taking for the last 3 days and I try to take it an hour before I go to bed, so I can get some sleep....thanks!

    Hi, waynet, is it a man flu thing? ha ha sorry couldn't resist! I always try the herbal way, if you have any garlic try chewing on it, it is great for killing germs and soothing the throat. Also onion is pretty good too. Try drinking loads of herbal drinks like elder flower, that's good for flu, if flushes out the toxins, and if you add a bit of marjoram that will make you sweat it out! But the best thing to do is try and keep of tea and coffee, and just keep to the warm herbals. Comfrey is good for the bronchials and chamomile will make you sleep when you keep getting restless at night. A whisky works as well! lol actually spirits will help if you only gargle them! I said gargle, listen to me! good luck

    Gargling with salt is quite good smile  Sounds like you need an antibiotic type of thing... cranberry juice, garlic.. you run down by any chance?
