It sounds strep like to me... not for sure but likely.<br><br>
My family just warded off an attack of strep with oil of oregano. DH was crazy sick with it, waiting for a throat swab to be cultured, and I started him on the oil. By the time the doc called to put him on antibiotics, saying yes indeed it's strep, it was pretty well gone. As soon as my throat started to hurt I started the oil and I got better overnight.

When I use to get strep they weren't the run of the mill symptoms. I had my own private set <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"><br><br>
Anyway, I had many throat swabs done and yes I did indeed have strep.<br><br>
I would always have a sore throat, swollen glands and a very low fever. No white spots.<br><br>
Sure wish my mom would have know what I know now. Maybe I wouldnt be allergic to Penicillin nowadays.
