    I've been assuming it's just irritation caused by hay fever but now I'm wondering if it's an impetigo-like strep or staff thing.

    Whatever it is, it's driving me mad.
  2. Go to your gp - I had something similar once and was given Naseptin cream to treat it, which is a mild antibiotic. Cleared up a treat.

    Have just been doing a search and have decided to get a swab done at the doc's. I'm sick of waking up parched after breathing through my mouth despite drinking more than a litre of water every night over the hours I wake up repeatedly.

    Thank you Mrs Wo. I suddenly realised that what I was going through was NOT just another hay fever symptom.

    Mrs Wo replied to me on another thread.
    Anyone with simnilar symptoms should get a swab done.

    No she didn't. She replied to me on this one. I'm a piilock.
  7. mrs wo didn't reply to you on this thread inky. But mrs mo did. Not sure if that still qualifies you as a pillock or not ;-)

    If it is golden and oozy, then it might be impetigo and you will need tablets and cream, costing 2 prescriptions worth, .
    Some crusty red soreness happens with hayfever and colds though and will clear up in a couple of days without treatment.
