Sore throat. - January 26th 2009, 04:27 AM

I have a sore throat, it feels swollen also and it just really, really hurts. Is there anything I can do to make it go quicker? It's making me feel a tad sick at times which just works me up because I don't want to be sick. Any ideas welcome.

drink a lot of water, and go see if you can buy Luden's brand cherry cough drops. not only do they help your throat but they taste extremely delicious

Warm water, lemon and honey. Sounds gross, but taste's alright. Really soothes.
If it's not better soon, why not see a doctor to get something stronger or a diagnosis?

Get well soon <3

Hey,

Make sure you drink loads and you know what also eat toast it's take the soreness away. It's what I do. Also find some sore throat sweets to help.

I'm drinking water and I had soothers but it feels worse today which I guess is to be expected. It just feels as really painful, and talking now makes me feel sick and it hurts my throat sometimes. I just want it gone so I'll try what you suggested, thank you.

Sucky sweets work great. If you can get Strepsils, in the UK, I recommend them. Get the ones for sore throats. I use them when I have a sore throat and they work great.

Re: Sore throat. - January 27th 2009, 03:57 PM

I usually have dequacaine, particularly when going to bed/getting up. It numbs the throat for a few hours.

I'm not sure if it's OTC or not though - if it lasts for more than a week I'd see your GP
