Sore throat
Woke up with a sore throat, and will not be able to see the doc till tomorrow afternoon at the earliest. Anyone have any remedies that will soothe a throat and make it feel better?

Gargle with salt water. This will really help to soothe the throat and kill any bacteria. It may sting at first but it will help.

Keep a clove in your mouth till the time you are feeling irritated. Even if you sleep with it in your mouth it is alright, clove is good for teeth.

Salt is great but honey is better...just have a tablespoon of honey.

Drink lots of fluids to keep the throat moist.

I usually pop an Ibuprofen to deal with the pain, and then gargle with Listerine several times a day. And switch your toothbrush out as well.

Honey in tea is one of my favorite things to do. IT really does work.

That nasty spray you can buy over the counter. It tastes gross but it does help. And I also suck on hard candies or cough drops.
