Down with the Sickness: Strep Thorat

Oh that dreaded Strep Throat has already hit my house! After last year with Thea having it several times and then her tonsils out, I was really hoping we wouldn’t have to deal with that this year. My hopes were shattered, except this time the oldest one, Quincy, came home with Strep Throat. I feel I could be a Strep Throat specialty doctor since we have had it so many times! And boy did it hit our house early this year! September and Strep Throat! WHAT???

If you get Strep Throat or have a child who gets it here are some tips to a speedy recovery!

  • Go to the doctor! If you don’t get some antibiotics in you then it can keep spreading. No one needs to keep repeating the sickness!
  • Gargle with salt water.
  • DRINK lots of fluids. Water, 100% fruit juices, and Tea with honey! Honey will help with coughing and heal the throat! I drink lots of tea with honey if my throat gets scratchy. It always helps!
  • After 24 hours of antibiotic get rid of the toothbrush and get a new one!
  • Wash your hands often.
  • Take a bath or shower every night to get rid of excess germs.
  • Get lots of extra sleep.
