My lovely husband, for our 12th anniversary last Sunday, gave me his sore throat and swimming head. I woke up this morning with "Ut oh, my throat is hurting" and I am stumbling more than usual with more frequent flushes. I know HC lowers your immune system so is this why? I don't want to take up a GP appointment with a sore throat but reading what I have about infections with PV I am a little worried about how bad this will get? Am I being a wuss?
