Hi Kim......to me it sounds like maybe it can be more then allergies. I know you can't afford a dr.s visit but if your throat is as sore as you say it is then it could be something more serious then just allergies such as strep throat, tonsillitis (if you still have your tonsils), or a throat infection. If it is strep, this needs to be taken seriously since strep can cause so many more complications. Do you have a fever at all? In the meantime, if you can tolerate Advil - then I recommend you take that. Not only can it help with the pain, it can help with any swelling you have. Gargling with warm salt water can help your throat and using a humidifier can help with a stuffy nose in combination with saline nasal spray. I'm so sorry you are feeling so poorly! Hang in there.
