Is this a bad idea?

    I've got a sore throat and no medical insurance. My dad's telling me to try gargling with peroxide (making sure not to swallow any), but I don't think it sounds like a good idea. Thoughts?

    Wow. Not even close to worth the risk.

    I've heard of gargling with salt water, but peroxide? Danger, Will Robinson. Of course, DocTalk can answer this question better than anyone. Send him a PM.

    Jesus, that sounds like a bad idea.

    Better than gargling lye, I guess. But not much.

    Dead on the floor after gargling with bleach. Ghost of chef will be posting by 1 p.m. tomorrow.

    With all due respect, is your father mentally balanced? Because that just sounds crazy.

    Nope, don't do it. Suck on a Strepsil if you can.

    A few days, SC.

    I ended up going the saltwater route again. And it's a good thing, too, cause I coughed about halfway through and swallowed some. Poor Beetus could be on his way to poison control right now, but instead, he's just cursing the taste of ocean still in his mouth.

    If it doesn't go away soon, go to the clinic. It might set you back $100, but it's better than gargling peroxide.

    That made me laugh very hard.
