The fact that your throat hurts when you swallow is an indication for the HOMEOPATHIC remedy BELLADONNA. Go to the healthfood store and buy some and take it three times daily for a couple of days and by then you should have had some relief.

Also gargle with some Tea Tree tincture. This is a natural antiseptic and can also help.

Then there is the gargling with salt water too. Salt water is a great healer.

Try and natural firstly as they are likely to work a lot better than the OTC stuff that you can buy and probably cheaper too.

Good luck
