My 4 yr old has strep, and I've not been able to get her to swallow anything all day! She's been spitting (gag!) In a cup all day, and won't eat or drink anything! She just started her meds, but I was curious as to how long I should let her do this? I got everything from pudding, ice cream, noodle soup, jello, juice, etc to entice her but nothing has worked! Help please!

Hi Mike! My daughters have had strep and so have I and it can be very painful swallowing anything. I told my daughters they had to drink there meds if they wanna get better. Plus anyways it was their favorite flavor:-) We made homemade recipes for strep such as our own honey ice cream and stuff like that. You gotta tell them that if she wants it not to hurt she got to keep drinking fluids. When I have a normal sore throat I get a normal sized cup and fill it up, then drink it in one breath until I have to breathe. Now I have not done that with strep though. Talk to your doctor about what to do also.
