"Trench Mouth"

That's its official name!! AKA: CANKERSORES!! I have been living on chicken broth, yogurt and jello for the last 4 days (I better have lost some weight) due to an outbreak! On Saturday night, my throat felt a little raw and thinking nothing of it, I went to bed. When I woke on Sunday morning, three cankersores had appeared in the back of my throat, one of which back by the uvula, which makes it quite impossible to swallow anything. I talked with the nurse on Monday morning and she recommended alum and water...tried it, didn't work. Next option, salt water...tried it, didn't work. So, I am now trying to use Amason by Oral B which was recommended by our nurse at school as well as the doctor. Let's hope I find some relief before the holidays cuz' this girl has to eat!!
