My throat is really begining to hurt and my friend at work has a sore throat too and her friend has strep.
I am hoping that I do not have strep. Can't antibiotics put us into a flare? My colon is not flaring but I am in a pretty precarious position and I am sure anything would put me into one.
If so, what do people do and take? I really, really, really want to get off pred and if I go into another flare I will be very very MAD!
I was super careful last winter, but I think I have been lax about making sure my hands are clean so I don't put any germs into my system.
Beth, 32 ~ hoping to taper pred successfully, wish me luck!
