I have pills from a month ago (Christmas) when I had Strep-throught, Should I take those or what, cause I think its really early for strep, of when it happened and I DONT want to miss school! but I don't want to give anyone else that. and my mom can't drive in the snow. and I dont know if I should tell her or not tell her and take one pill a day till its gone,.........................................................

Gargle warm salt water. Gargle a mixture of half water half peroxide. When my throat stars killing me that's what I do.

For starters if you live in an area thats using a furnace this time of year, it could have been caused by dry air. In which just drink plenty of water. If its actually an illness I tend to drink plenty of fluids and take a lot of vitamin C such as orange juice.

Take a deep breath and relax. Don't take any pills. Just make a hot cup of tea, add some lemon and a little honey. Sip slowly and all will be well. Honestly, I mean this with a lot of respect.....just relax. Don't be a hypochondriac. I promise you'll be ok.

raggweed has an excellent answer too.
