Get some sore throat spray. Try some cough drops like Halls. Hot chicken noodle soup. And of course, ice cream.

throat spray is a bad idea it will not fix the problem only the pain and when it wears off you will be worse off then you were and ice cream before you sing is a very bad idea

Hot green tea with honey! A really good kind that helps A LOT more than regular green tea is the Throat Coat. I think you can buy it at Publix. Hope this helps!

You can try pear soup, which is an old but easy traditional Chinese recipe. U can just put a pear in a bowl, and no water in the bowl. put the bowl in a bigger pot. pour some water into the pot until it can reach 1/3 of the bowl height. get the pot on the gas stove/ cooker. if the water boils, ,just leave it. keep it for 30 mins. lastly, you need to eat the pear which is soft and drink the soup in the bowl which is the most useful for your throat. try this, if it works please tell me. wish you get well soon

Hot Tea & Honey is OK. But before that Try to Gargle Crushed Garlic in Warm Water.

at the first hint of a cold or fever, instantly take 2 tablets of Arcozon and a tablet of coldeeze. Continue the arcozon and coldeeze at 3 tablets a day

Ok trust me on this! When I had strep throat I did some research and I found something. Okay so if you get some hydrogen peroxide, on the back it has directions for gargling, do that twice a day. And if you get the spray bottle king, just spray it in. If its strep....it will burn a little bit, but don't wash it out, you can drink water or something to get the taste out afterwards. My strep usually lasts a week or more, the next day, the infection was gone, but it was still a little bit sore, and I drank some tea and didn't eat rough stuff, and it was all better! It totaly worked!!!!!!! Do it!

horses2588 is right. Gargle with hot salt water, and it is gross, but so works. Use enough salt that it all makes you throw up. I have not heard of the ice cubes, but those might work too, because you are either trying to kill the germ with hot salt water or freeze it to death. To soothe it after wards I would try the Honey and Lemon in Tea from coughing...!

take a teaspoon of pure raw honey with the honey comb and , a teaspoon of lemon fruit juice. Do this three times a day for two days then you will no longer feel scratchy sore throat. The raw honey with honey comb will kill that bacteria that is sticking around your tounsels.

Really you need to find out whats causing it, if its strep throat this can be very serious, in severe cases the strep can spread to other vital organs etc , you really need to find out why if its just sore because of irritation warm salt water gargle and spit

Scream as loud as you can all day. No, you could try gargling with some mouthwash or use warm water and salt.
