So the other day, I was in a pharmacy and I saw that they had a "cold 'n' cough" medicine. The alliteration caught my eye, and I wondered it would be possible to create alliterative names with other ailments. "Fever 'n' flu" was the obvious next choice.
Well, of course there was a puzzle in the making - and here it is:
Create as many pairs of alliterative ailments as possible. Each pair is worth one point; if one illness or symptom often occurs simultaneously with its pair, that pair is worth two points. Diseases may not be used more than once in an answer - this is mostly to make things easier for you guys so you don't need to worry about permutations. If the ailment is not recognized by WebMD, it doesn't count.
Fever & Flu 2 points Cold & Cough 2 points Mumps & Measles 1 point ~Total:~ 5 points
Everyone is allowed to use the above pairs, so you basically start with five points.
How many points can you get?
A bounty will be awarded if your solution is longer than a CVS receipt. I suppose that means I won't be giving out a bounty, but who knows! You guys are pretty clever. Also, potentially "paying it forward" on Avigrail's generous bounty on this question.
