How can I cure my severe sore throat?

For a few days now, my throat has been hurting. I am coughing a LOT and when i talk it sounds very raspy. I gag and feel like Im about to throw up sometimes when I'm coughing or talking. I got sent home sick from school. Help.

My first suggestion is to definitely see a doctor and get some antibiotics ASAP! There are also some home remedies you can try out, such as, drinking hot tea with honey, gargle with saltwater, sucking on cough drops (you can get cough drops at any local drugstore + they have lots of different flavors!), drinking lots of fluids to stay hydrated, eat warm chicken soup (it feels really good when you eat chicken soup, because you can feel the warmth in your throat and it's very soothing), eating marshmallows, and most importantly ... to rest! I hope you feel better! I tried out these tips and they work great with sore throats! :)

If they sent you home, you should go see a doctor.

Hot tea with some honey. Whiskey in it doesn't hurt either around bedtime.

It sounds weird but it works! Get a bottle of Tabasco brand Habareno sauce. Take two or three drops and let it sit in your mouth for a second or two, then repeat once or twice. Works like a charm.
