Default Sore throat remedies

Anyone have a good remedy they could share for getting rid of a sore throat? My throad is sore and my voice is VERY strained. I can hardly talk. Going to the doctor is not an option right now. I've heard of good remedies over the years, but they all escape me when I need it most: now.

did you stock up on the cough drops?

that throat spray really numbs your entire mouth, it feels really good

I've been using the chloroseptic spray. It does help, but man does it have a weird taste!

I completely forgot about cough drops. I'm sucking on a Halls right now. Thanks for that reminder.

Believe it or not but prescription pain medicine helps a sore throat go away faster.
A bole of chicken soup and a darvocet (pain pill) before bed and you will fell better in the morning.

Good advice as with the others who stated to gargle...try peroxide & water, but be careful not to swallow it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Be careful with menthol, as too much can cause indgestion or acid reflux like symptoms.

Also a pain medicine regimen like ibprofin, aspirin, Tylenol...take with milk the aspirin & ibuprofin that is...


I used to get sore throats all the time due to a tonsil issue I once had...

Take a hot bath and wrap a hot towel around your head.
