Mouthwash: Brushing, flossing, and use of a proxy-brush is the best routine for maintaining a healthy mouth.

Salt water, a mild hydrogen peroxide solution, and baking soda may be just as effective as any store bought mouthwash. Concentrate on mechanical debridement. ...Read more

Can bacterial infections happen thats not strep and show symptoms in your tonsils? If so, what does it make you feel like and can it kill you?
Yes: Pharyngitis can be caused by other bacteria and viruses. Overall, it may make you feel bad, but they all go away within a few days by themselves (with a normal immune system), with or without treatment. The reason we treat strep is that is can cause other problems down the road, like rheumatic heart disease. Danger would be severe swelling of tonsils, which is fairly rare. See a doctor. ...Read more
I took bacterial vaginosis treatment by mouth two weeks ago, but I got oral thrush from it, and I think my BV has come back after having sex?!

Any natural remedies to help kill any possible cancereous cells remaining after total thyroidectomy if rai is not necessary?
Hmm: Not that i know of. Certainly after thyroidectomy there is a goal of suppressing the TSH in thyroid cancer.
