A Challenge To The Natural/Home Remedies People
I currently have swollen glands on the right hand side of my neck which is getting worse, i am unable to open my jaw very wide so cant eat or talk properly. I am unable to get to see a doctor because of the seasonal flu/norovirus crap and i need it to go by Saturday. I am willing to try anything (legal) to make it go away or go down enough to be able to talk/eat by Saturday. What are your suggestions?

Urgent care. If it progresses to orbital cellulitus, you're dead. Or you could try an onion poultice.

Just, if it does this, get to a doctor no matter what, k'?

Re: A Challenge To The Natural/Home Remedies People
Infections in the head and neck are nothing to mess with, OP. You really should goto a real physician ASAP.

Meanwhile, I suggest you take some Ibuprofen to relax your seized up jaw. I realize its not natural, but it works. Also, sometimes a warm heating pad or warm water pack near the area can help relax the muscles and ease some of the pain.
Chamomile tea is a mild relaxant you could try.

Sometimes a mild antihistamine will help with glandular issues (if thats the cause of the swelling). Ginger has natural antihistamine qualities, fresh is best- either added to tea or a few thin slices placed inside your cheek.

If the problem is glandular drainage, you can apply lemon or orange oil to the skin on and around the area to aid the drainage.

I knew of some Amish folks that also swore by placing sliced beets on swollen glands of the throat covered by a warm towel...replacing the beet slices when their red color changes to green. I had this done for me as a child once, and it did seem to help a little.

If you have any lemon balm or Melissa tea on hand, that can help fight off infection. Then of course there is the old immune booster standbys- orange juice, blueberries, and garlic...not eaten together of course.

Hope you feel better soon, OP.

Can't explain the swollen jaw so it's most likely nothing to do with what I'm going to say but a sore on the scalp can cause a lump in the neck.

Gargle sea salt and since you can't eat, crush up garlic and mix it with water. It'll taste horrible yes.. but garlic is what you call a natural anti biotic. My throat was actually getting swollen today and all it took to fix was half a garlic clove. Most importantly is your thoughts. Can't tell you how to use that exactly.. it's something you should observe and learn to work by yourself.
Hope you get better.

^^^ THIS IS SO TRUE!!!!!!

You would need to go through a lengthy detox first.


It's like eating Mcdummy's and frozen dinners everyday and then having a salad. The indigestion and shitopia isn't because salad is bad......it's because your body has adapted to eating processed crap and can't digest the salad the second you decide to change your ways. Takes time.

Natural and homeopathic remedies don't work on your schedule. If you want a magic pill, go pay the $$, take your chances with modern magic pill dr's.

You will of course pay dearly for it with more than just money.

grapefruit seed extract. depending on body weight, i'm assuming you are an average dude...about 20 drops per shot glass of juice (mix very well, this shit is viscous and tastes horrible) 3x/day

or eat a lot of raw garlic. anyway it sounds like lymph issues, so at least drink lots and lots of water to flush your system.

gargle with warm salt water.

honey and lemon teas, with ginger if you can.

the lymph is a filter for the body, so the water is extra important.

say you have a cold and overdose on vitamin c to help it...the cold gets flushed into the lymph and creates lymphatic issues. this is one of the reasons you are not supposed to overdo it with vit. c.

Doesn't sound good, and possible infection. Treat immediately with bitter tonics several times a day - some good ones have already been mentioned, together with a light diet. Plus herbal teas with manuka honey.

Probably not essential if you have been prescribed anti-biotics. What did the doctor have to say?

Although totally into 'natural therapies' take your antibiotics as prescribed. Have your tea with echinacea & honey too. If you want to help yourself, keep your diet VERY light and nutrient dense! Eg. Herbal teas and soup. Ginger with lemon & sea salt is great too. Hope you get better soon.

So the swelling has gone down but burning now? And you can't sleep because of the burning?

Still taking anitbiotics? What about probiotics?

Okay, let's try some things.

Put a small amount of hydrogen peroxide in each ear. Let me know if you have some and we'll go from there.
