heated honey with ginger brandy

I often use the old ways of my grandmother. Use two table spoons of honey heated in a pan. when the honey melts down mix in two shots of ginger brandy or your brandy of choice.Sip this down slowly and you should do the trick. Good luck

tea with honey and lemon. ibuprofen. see a doctor if it is really sore - strep requires antibiotics


Jamie H
if you smoke, a menthol cigarette helps, but if you don't chloreseptic works wonders as well as cough drops


SandyTmpa
Make up a solution of 5% peroxide and 95% water. Gargle and spit. Repeat as necessary.

If your sore throat is related to a cold, another great solution is Zicam's throat spray. It actually treats the cold, not just the symptoms.

Have you tried Hall's fruit breeze cough drops? They've been fabulous for my sore throat problems.

Popsicles and drinking lots of cool fluids

I know this may sound gross, but trust me it really does work. Get you some table salt and mix it with real warm water. Gargle with this mixture for as long as you can stand it. DO this several times a day and I promise you that your throat will get better. Also, any type of throat logenze will help for short term relief.


MELISSA&ERIC
GET SOME HOT WATER AND PUT ABOUT A TABLESPOON OR SO OF SALT AND MIX IT REALLY WELL, THEN GARGLE THE SALT WATER UNTIL IT'S GONE. IT WON'T HURT TO SWALLOW SOME OF THE SALT WATER, BUT NOT TOO MUCH...JUST GARGLE AND SPIT IT OUT... MOST OF THE TIME IT CLEARS IT UP....IF NOT YOU MAY HAVE TO GO TO YOUR LOCAL DRUG STORE AND GET A COLD REMEDY SUCH AS THERAFLU OR SORE THROAT LOZENGES...

try drinking lot of water, i always to that when i have a sore throat, water therapy. or try tea with lemon.

When we were kids and had sore throats, grandma used this home remedy and it really helped! I STILL use it today.

Prepare a box of Jello per the directions on the box. When it is still warm, but not too hot, drink it. It really soothes your throat without expensive over the counter medications that leave a nasty taste in your mouth.

You obviously need to go to the doctor for medicine but in the mean time, try hot tea with honey and gargle with warm salt water as often as possible.

gargle with warm salt water.


chrystal_lynn2002
Gargle with warm salt water, put enough salt in so that way the water cant disolve the salt anymore... and gargle that 3 times a day, on a biological level, the salt water makes bacteria cell walls explode, killing the bacteria, its been done for years :)

Use a nasal spray. A sore throat is usually caused by post nasal drip and a nasal spray works well with that. Use tylenol sore throat, it really works. See your doctor for a strep test

but make sure to get some antibiotics from your doctor or it could get worse.

Licorice tea. Also black licorice. You can find the tea at your local natural foods store. Hope you throat feels better!


miss_seksi05
gargle 1 teaspoon of salt in a glass of warm water. i hated doing it when i was younger, but youll be amazed of how quick it heals your throat. salt is a natural healant.

* Increase your liquid intake. (Warm tea with honey is a favorite home remedy).
* Use a steamer or humidifier in your bedroom.
* Gargle with warm salt water several times daily: ┬╝ tsp. salt to 1/2 cup water.
* Take mild pain relievers such as acetaminophen (Tylenol®, Datril®, Tempra®), ibuprofen (Advil®), etc.
* Take non-prescription throat lozenges.
