cough drops... :) but do not talk to much and yes, like everyone is saying drink tea. if u talk too much tho it will hurt more and last longer. and dont eat any spicy foods or really crunchy and hard foods. eat stuff like apple sauce , macoroni, i'm sure u'll come up with something.
Try medicine first then maybe some cough drops and there is this tea that really helps so get a cup of hot water then squeeze some lemons in it stir and the add some honey it really good and helpful for your throat...hope it helps ;D
