Hello, I woke up yesterday (Tuesday) with a horrible sore throat and went straight to the doctor as I am due to fly on a 18-hr trip across the globe this Friday. The doctor prescribed me antibiotics which I started yesterday and am also doing as many of the natural remedies as I can including gargles, hot drinks, honey, lemon, ibuprofen and ginger and garlic.
My throat feels better but I still feel a little zapped of energy and although am sure I will get better am concerned what the long flight in two days will do. I have often suffered from ear infections after travel following a cold and although I'm hoping I caught this quick enough I was hoping to get some additional tips on how best to avoid getting worse after the flight and ruining a short overseas holiday that can't be refunded or changed.
I'd really appreciate any tips or suggestions, thank you!
