    I'm having a tough time of things. I've come down with a cold and I have a sore throat. Some of you may have read elsewhere that I suffer with tonsillitus at the mere whiff of a cold in the air. Already my throat has started to 'go'.

    I'm sucking Sugar Free Strawberry Strepsils. The ingredients are:

    Active Ingredients
    2,4-Dichlorobenzyl alcohol 1.2mg
    Amylmetacresol 0.6mg.

    Also contains:
    Isomaltitol (E953)
    Maltitol Syrup (E965)
    Tartaric Acis
    Strawberry Flavor
    Sodium Saccharin (E954)
    Ponceau 4R (E124)


    Just typing that has made me feel dubious about sucking another one! Just in case I get really desperate, are these permissible on Cambridge (even though I've just fallen off the wagon by eating a chicken sandwich - back on tomorrow)

    Many thanks in advance .....

    Hi, I have got a horrible sore throat too so I can sympathise on this. I looked at the Strepsils and decided against based on the ingredients. I'm currently gargling with Sage tea which a herbal friend recommended. I think it's OK as all I'm doing is putting the leaves in hot water and then gragling or drinking the tea at work (anything else is a bit antisocial for my colleagues:) )

    The only thing is the ingredients that I dont like is the maltitol syrup. I am not sure if it will knock you out of ketosis or not. My diabetic sisters has them and it doesn't effect her sugar levels but a CDC should be along in a min to advise you x Get well soon.

    You could try gargling with soluable aspirin as well - i think if you keep it in your throat for a good while, it is meant to really help. I always swallow afterwards, but I cant see that a bit of aspirin would hurt??

    Hope that you feel better soon :)
