Tylenol Sore Throat worked wonders for me a month or two ago when my throat got sore. It cools so nicely on the throat, and really helps instantly, and lasts a good while too.

That, some tea, tons of cough drops, and ice cream will nail it.

Well, I did a lot of the things suggested in this thread and feel a lot better. I'm back at work today. Here'* what I did (in not particular order):

Took plenty of Nyquil and Dayquil (not at the same time)
Took Tylenol cold medicine (the liquid stuff)
Spent a solid 45 minutes in our hot tub
Took a 1 hour nap
Went to bed early and slept in
Ate at least a dozen cough drops
Ate 3 bowls of chicken noodle soup
Gargled mouth wash

My throat isn't really sore any more, but my voice is still a little strained.

I said going to the doctor wasn't an option because my wife and I don't have insurance right now. I got a new job and the new insurance doesn't start until August 1st. I could go if I had to, but all expenses would be out of pocket.

I didn't see anywhere where you stood on your head while gargling warm chicken soup with a shot of tequila and cherry cough drops up your nose and an old smelly sock with a clove of garlic in it, soaked in warm salt water, wrapped around your throat.


Oh, and for Ryan, Smith Bros. Cherry cough drops have been around probably longer than both you and I have been alive. They're just not advertised.

Oh and Mark...glad you're feeling a bit better.
