What helps a sore throat caused by reflux?

What can I take to soothe a sore throat caused by reflux? It feels like an acid burn. It's really red inside and I have extra mucous at the base, most likely it's the membranes trying to protect the area. Tums don't help the sore throat, and lozenges that numb only help temporarily. Salt water soothes it for a few minutes and then it's back to feeling the burning. Is there anything specific for sore throats caused by reflux? I would like to coat it somehow until it heals?

Re: What helps a sore throat caused by reflux?

Sucretts lozonges (the cherry ones with diclonine in them) will help soothe the burn while nature heals it they are longer acting than most throat loznges.

Are you tasking treatment for the reflux, a PPI or somthing? That will prevent it happening again, and allow for healing.

Re: What helps a sore throat caused by reflux?

I have similar with AR and it comes and goes. You could try Aloe Vera Juice which might help as its good for the stomach.
Another thing you could try is Manuka Honey either off the spoon or in some warm milk.
Doyou take PPIs, or even Gaviscon will help line your stomach.
Good Luck, Solofelix.

Re: What helps a sore throat caused by reflux?

I was precribed prevacid. It's 30 mg but it doesn't cover me for 24 hrs. Good for about 12 hrs then I'm into chewing tums in between.
