The natural remedies for throat problems include: gurgling warm water, taking herbal tea and boiling ginger for a small sip. However, the throat infections are caused by viral or bacterial infections. You can however see a doctor for further examination.
They say gargle salt water but that does do anything but make you gag and almost throw up. Try drinking tea or water. Usually I suck on hard candy like jolly ranchers. It doesn't get rid of it but it helps the soreness.
