Infection Relief
"I was introduced to Colloidal Silver Plus just over a year ago. Before discovering this product I had dealt with problems of infections in the nose and eye cavities and sore throat on and off for several years. Now I use Total Colloidal Silver Nasal in my nose two or three sprays a couple of times a day. It is amazing. I have not had problems with infection since. My sister had similar problems, and even had surgery at one time. I told her about it, and she started using it right before spring and the terrible allergy season. She would always get very sick with the infections and be right down in bed. She got through the spring without getting sick and is amazed by the help she has received from it."

Should all Sore Throats be Treated with Antibiotics?
No. Not every sore throat is strep throat. Bacteria only cause about 5% to 10% of sore throats. The rest are caused by viruses or other problems, and antibiotics will not help.

Know Your Treatment Options
Sore throats caused by viral infection like colds or flu, treatment usually involve OTC (over the counter) medicines like pain killers and lozenges. These medications provide minor symptom relief only, and do nothing to help your immune system defeat the virus or bacteria causing the infection. Antibiotics are also ineffective against virus. While antibiotics can potentially clear a bacteria caused infection, regular use of prescription antibiotics can weaken your immune system and result in recurring infections and frequent visits to the doctor’s office.

Can Other People Catch My Strep Throat?
Yes. You can give Strep Throat infection to other people. Children with strep throat should not go back to school or day care until their fever has gone away.

Know Your Symptoms
While many people use the terms strep throat and sore throat, interchangeably, there are many significant differences between these conditions. While strep throat is most common in children and adolescents, sore throat and strep throat can affect people of all ages.

Sore Throat Caused By Bacteria
Strep throat is an infection caused by bacteria.  It is called "strep" because the bacteria that causes the infection is called streptococcus. 

Adults who have strep throat typically suffer from enlarged and tender lymph glands, with bright red inflamed and swollen throat; you may have a high temperature, headache, and aching muscle and joints.

Children with strep throat have a sore throat and may have tummy pain or a red rash with small spots. The rash is worse under the arms and in skin creases.

Sore Throat Caused By Viruses
In infants and children, the most frequent cause of tonsillitis is virus. For a viral infection, no antibiotic is needed and the infection can be expected to run a four-to-six day course.

Tonsils and Tonsillitis
The tonsils are red, oval clumps of tissue located at the back and to the sides of the throat. This location allows the tonsils to intercept germs as they enter your body through the nose and throat. The tonsils contain infection-fighting cells and antibodies that stop the spread of the germs further into the body. When the tonsils become red, sore, and swollen, this inflammation is called tonsillitis.
