To answer this question I decided to find out what people are saying about strep throat on some of the most popular social media sites. A quick review of the comments on Twitter and the questions on Yahoo Answers indicates that there is an army of people that are desperate for strep throat treatment.
To show you what people are talking about, here are some of the questions I found by searching on Yahoo Answers:
I think I might have strep throat but, I don’t really know all the symptoms… I have a horrible sore throat that hurts when i swallow, a cough, lots-o-headaches.
Also While we’re at it I’m curious about Mono: I’ve been super tired all the time, swollen lymph nodes, and my sister had it a coupe months ago and we shared a soda….
plz answer if you feel like you have an answer..
Hi I just went to the doctor yesterday and found out I have strep throat. I’m on antibiotics , but the pain is unbearable. they offered me a steroid shot in the office, but I’m broke and don’t have insurance, so I passed on that. Does anyone know any home remedies or anything that will take the edge off this pain? I’m making some hot tea right now. It just really hurts to swallow so I don’t like to eat or drink. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
I am pretty sure I have strep throat. I have a lump the size of a watermelon in my lymph nodes and I keep running a fever. I sleep an obscene amount and feel like total crap. Any suggestions on what I can do to feel better?
My next search on Twitter found these comments:
