    Hi guys,

    Well I actually think im on death row lol

    Iv got a really bad chest infection and tonsilittis...

    Does anyone know any cough medicine type things that we can take that wont affect diet?

    All i can think of is Honey and Lemon lol a mixture of sugar and citric acid - marvellous!

    Taking paracetamol at the moment, and getting on with it, but if anyone knows of anything that could help i would be forever grateful!

    Thanks in advance

    bless you :( I am going to say though ( as a nurse and a fellow tonsilitis sufferer ) that although you may get every side effect from the antibiotics .. i wouldn't leave it .. i did that with tonsilitis and ended up with an abscess on my tonsils , and a trip to A&E and IV antibiotics .. it can get much worse and not worth the risk when its your airway hun :(

    Please don't leave it, I had double quinsy (abscess' on both tonsils) and had to have an emergency tonsillectomy...that would be far worse to go through just before Christmas. The chest infection on top of tonsillitis indicates that this is not a battle that your body is winning so will likely get worse.

    You can ask for another antibiotic, Dr's don't bite...amoxicillin is used for tonsillitis and chest infections with success.
