Worse than childbirth. I'm v run down, got depression too, yippee. I was digging around my craggy tonsil for stones and have caused a stonking ulcer. Jesus it is fucking agony. Any suggestions to ease the suffering?!

Gargle soluble paracetamol - it's horrid but it does work!

Difflam ,not cheap ,but effective .

You poor thing flowers

Second the recommendation for difflam

Thanks all. Yeah I got difflam (£8.20!!!)earlier today. It has mildly taken the edge off. Will add soluble paracetamol to my repertoire. I remember it from childhood, it's bleurgh indeed! Salt water is useless. Provides a minor distraction though.

Would gargling with salt dissolved in water help?? (helps for a normal sore throat)

If you are not allergic take an anti inflammatory like ibuprofen too.

Ibuprofen and codeine are helping thanks yeah. Sadly the ulcer laughed in the salt waters face grin, but appreciated!
