Been diagnosed with viral pharyngitis, taking cefaclor, can I drink a hot toddy tea with liquor?

Viral pharyngitis?: If it's truly viral pharyngitis, there's no need for the antibiotic (unless there was a bacterial superinfection as well). Liquor may numb the discomfort, but alcohol dries the throat, which the body tries to remedy by producing more mucus. Tea with lemon & honey might be a better choice. ...Read more

Hello. : Hello. You may want to start with sips of room temperature water. Flat gingerale can help sometimes. You can also make some ginger tea. Put slices of organic ginger in a tea pot and allow to steep in boiling water for at least five minutes. Start with sips. Avoid acidic juices (tomato, orange, grapefruit), coffee, tea or dark sodas. If you find that despite attempts to hydrate yourself that you have a rapid resting heart rate (ie. 120), or that you feel faint or dizzy when going from lying to sitting or sitting to standing, then you may be dehydrated. If this is the case, you can consider going to an acute care clinic or an er, as you might need intravenous hydration. Hope you feel better soon. ...Read more

Stomach flu, vomiting and diarrhea all thursday night. Drank lots of water, vomited more of course, but noticed green bits like mucus or chives in it?

Stomach flu, vomiting and diarrhea all thursday night. Drank lots of water, vomited more of course, but noticed green bits like mucus or chives in it?

Nothing serious: The color of vomit or diarrhea, or the appearance of bits and chunks of various sorts (mostly partly digested food), says nothing about the cause or severity of the problem. The main exception is that obvious blood is a concern. Otherwise, don't worry about it. Most viral gastroenteritis ("flu" is a misnomer) is caused by norovirus and is most severe for 24-48 hr, then should improve. Good luck! ...Read more
