Sore throat and Allergies
 
Anyone have a sore throat from allergies? Mine has been chronic and think it might be from mold or allergies. Any similar experience or advice how to treat this?

If it's allergies a simple antihistamine might be enough. When I've had really badly allergic sore throat, I've bought children's liquid benedryl and gargled with it.

In cases of viral or bacterial infection on my throat, I've gargled with 1 part hydrogen peroxide to 2 parts water. It doesn't help pain, per se, but it does work on the nasty stuff.

I don't know if my sore throats are caused by allergies but I guess it is since I'm not sick with a cold or flu. I wake up with this sore and painful feeling in my throat sometimes. Maybe from mouth breathing or watever? I also get it when I breathe in too much cold and dry air. I drink lots of plain water as much as possible. So how are you coping with the sore throat now mel1980?

Hi! I've been doing the salt water gargle and drinking TONS of water. It's helped SO much! Also, I stopped sleeping with the AC on. Thanks for the tips!
