I started getting a cold yesterday with the normal body aches, headache, earache and of course a sore throat. I've been taking ibuprofen for the body aches and it seems to be working. Today I decided to take a look at my throat and found quite a few pus pockets. I don't have insurance so my Hubbys uncle called me in a prescription for z-pak. I did a little research and it says that it could just be a cold (it's being going around here) and taking the antibiotic will actually do more harm than good? I'm kind of tempted to go to a walk in clinic or something tomorrow and get a strep test. What do you think?!
