    Hey All,

    I have had a very soar throat for a couple of days, to the point that I've had to have a day off work as it really hurts when I swallow or speak.

    Does anyone know what I could take? I'm only on day 4 and probably just into ketosis, so don't want to take any risks.

    Thanks in advance for any help,

    gargling soluble paracetamol helps if you've got some

    Awww, thanks to you all.

    Did gargle with salt water, but kept swallowing it because my little boys kept laughing his head off at me. He was in bed and kept coming in the bathroom, then he had an excuse for the next hour to keep getting up, telling me his throat was sore too and he needed to gargle.

    Think it's helped a little, but will continue with it.
