I've a bad sorethroat and bad diarrea since a week ago. The sore on my throat is very painful. However, I don't developed fever or flu. Due to my HIV, I took Pau D Arco and Andrographis since last 3 months. These herbs could not cure my sorethroat at all. I have tried gargling with Apple Cider Vinegar. I have tried Virgin Coconut Oil capsule also. But it does not help to improve my condition. And it getting worse.
Last night, i cannot stand the pain anymore. I go to my fridge and pop in Curam 625mg Antibiotic. This morning, my sorethroat is getting better. It's not that painful anymore.
Now I really have doubt on the efficacy of the Pau D Arco and Andrographis. I am not sure the sorethroat is caused by Virus or Bacteria. But after I took antibiotic, my sorethroat is getting better. However, it's still not going away..
Hveragerthi, may be u can help and is it really can cure HIV and leukemia virus? Can Pau D Arco cure severe sorethroat too?
