Remember when they painted your tonsils for a sore throat?
Do you remember when you were a kid and the doctor or your mom/dad would paint your tonsils when you had a horrible sore throat? My dad did this for us kids and I swear he used merthiolate and a q-tip. Is this something we could do today? Is there some other substance that would work better or be safer? Does this actually work? I don't remember having strep throat until I was an adult.

Was the painting done for strep? We kids never had it done, but shortly after my parents were married they both got sick & the doctor swabbed their throats. Mom could handle it but Daddy gagged so bad he didn't trust doctors after that! I guess that's what saved us from having it done.

Interesting that the "poisonous ingredient" listed on the website is thimerosol, the same ingredient they use in flu shots.
I'm presently on a waiting list to get my tonsils removed....at age 43! LOL Not looking forward to that, I hear that it's not a nice thing to get done. But then again, chronically painful throats all winter ain't no picnic either.
