Docbarry or anyone else qualified might have an answer for this. What does cigar smoke do to strep throat? I have been smoking cigars for 2 days with strep throat. My throat seems to be a little more sensitive but aside from that I haven't noticed any ill effects. My cigars TASTE fine. Is this going to effect my recovery? I wish these muscle pains would go away.
Hope you feel better soon.

Stop smoking for a few days. Smoke will only irritate already sensitive and infected tissue.

I'm no medical doctor, but I can't imagine that the smoke would be good for your infected throat. Hope you feel better.

I'm in the same boat. I'm sick as a dog right now but I want to smoke so bad.
People aren't smoking cigars to be trendy, cool or stylish. They're smoking cigars because they like them. Because they enjoy the experience. Because for about $5 they can spend an hour sampling one of life's greatest luxuries.
I know someone who lost their son recently to strep throat. I wouldnt mess with it.
I agree with WACCO. Don't smoke if you have a sore throat beacuse it will irritate your throat.
If you want, send the cigars that you would have smoked to me and I will personally smoke every one of them for you.

The risk of kicking butt is you get some crap on your shoe
I got some antibiotics. Now I just need to stop drinking and smoking long enough to let them work. That might be tough.
BTW, Bulz, very sorry to hear about that. Its kinda scary. I don't feel too bad right now so I forget how serious strep infections can be.
Doc, sorry, I'm fresh out of opus, pepperoni, and even marsh wheelings. There is nothing in my humidor for ya.
Step away from the humidor and the liquor cabinet PMP. General opinion of the emergency room staff.
Hope you feel better real soon.

okay...now I can see the stop smoking thing with strep....but stop drinking....thats just too much for a man to endure

Hope you get better soon PMP, I agree with most here step away from the humidor. As for the drinks maybe just one won't hurt
I'm just a few days past taking a cycle of antibiotics for bronchitis (still taking an inhaler) but we got our profit sharing checks yesterday morning so I HAD to have a smoke to celebrate
Drink some hot Green tea, it will help.

Thanks for all the well wishing. Last night I maybe got a little too carried away with the drinks and the smokes. Now I will stop because it feels like my mouth and throat is on fire. Oh well, you live you learn. You were all correct.
Strep throat = not a good time to smoke and drink!
