  1. 1) I have a backache as a result of my slipped disc. Could I get some cortisone to remedy it?

    2) I feel sick and I have diarrhea. I think I need an antibiotic.
    (Frankly, if you use an antibiotic when you already have diarrhea, the diarrhea will get worse! I'm sure that's not what you mean, right?)

    3) He’s got plaques in his throat and keeps coughing. He can’t swallow anything.
    (I don't know what "plaques" are. Please explain.)

    4) He disinfected the deep/slight cut in his child’s leg and put a bandage on it.

    5) She painted her fingernails red (she put red nail varnish on) and then let them dry.

    He wiped the sweat from his forehead.
    (OK)
