    Just got Mono and have questions.

    Hey, almost 2 weeks ago now I got Mono. Not sure how, but I'm guessing from a cafe I work at... I read a few posts on here about infected throats, and all white because of sugar.. I have the same symptoms! My throat is really swelled, infected, and had puss all over... It's finally going away, but I just realized cause of sugar I had that! And, I have Mono... Which is horrible..
    So, I am wondering, what can I drink to keep my throat from getting infected again?? Can I drink coffee? I don't think I should be drinking milk cause I read stay away from milk too... Is that true?
    What can I eat to speed up the healing process?
    I barely been able to sleep due to all the pain my neck has caused me..
    Can I drink coffee even if I had taken a few Tylenol??

    You can drink coffee or tea, flavored waters, etc. Just not too hot. The white on your throat is from the infection, not from sugar. Did you have a blood test that confirmed mono? If not you should definitely have a strep culture done since there is pus on your throat, and that requires treatment. 10-15% of people with mono have strep too, which needs treated. Mono can be confirmed with a blood test if you have not had that.

    Smile Re: Just got Mono and have questions.

    Ok... Thanks! I have gotten a blood test done a few days ago, and yes it is Mono.. They did a culture test too, but it wasn't strep.. They did another test (a stronger one) to see also if it was strep, but its not... I have been eating WAY too much sugar... Its true about it being infected by sugar.

    I'm glad you could repost Thanks!
