    Dont persevere with it, nip it in the bud, being in tri1 you may have to but go to a chemist explain to them and ask them. I did that now ive got a full blown cold and feel awful x

    You could try gargling with salt water, that can be quite effective at helping sore throats. Also hot water with honey and lemon can help soothe it and Get plenty of vitamin C to speed up recovery. Hope you feel better soon.

    I asked my midwife and the GP at the out of hours emergency care centre as I have been ill with tonsillitis, and they both said it is fine to take them, just dont pop them like skittles. They only put warnings on strepsils as everyone is just more careful these days
