Hi, Mersasha. What helps me the most is mega doses of chewable Vitamin C. I usually take 3,000-4,000 mg. of it about three times a day for a couple of days and that usually takes care of it. I know that seems like a lot of Vitamin C, but it is water soluble, which means you'll pee out what you don't need. It's impossible to overdose on it. Plus gargling hot salt water helps a lot also. Ihope you start feeling better very soon!
