ended up needing lil trip to the lovely costa yesterday evening as unable to control symptoms after allergy reaction to radox complicated asthma symptoms, as well as having an upper respiratory tract infection and apparently raging tonsilitis. doc said they white and huge (yuk! sorry..)
i was discharged after asthma symptoms had settled down and given strong pain relief and strong, double dose antibiotics to take for a week, as well as advised to continue my current 60mg pred for a wee while longer before going back down to 40mg and weaning down YET AGAIN!!
what i was wondering, as paeds nurse, i am obviously used to dealing with all of the above in children and a mix of such in children, but obviously its completely diff when its yourself!!
any tips on dealing with tonsilitis in non- children??
i am finding it really difficult to swallow as sooo painful
also, still using inh 4hrly, which i know is okay, but obviously when you got snuffly nose cos of URTI its hard to use the volumatic/ aerochamber for 10 puffs ...
and sneezing more now than when hayfever really bad, hehe :S
