Post Those really yucky sore throats...

How do you soothe those sandpaper type sore throats? IT hurst to swallow, drink, eat, or just sit here. I couldnt sleep cuase it was causing me problems and even caused mystomach to to be upset. Any types of tea or drops easy on yur stomach and good for soothing the throat? I hate these types of sore throats it hurts SOOOO bad.

You could have strip throat or mono. You should see a doctor.

This will sound crazy but I've had a sore throat for over a month and had all the necessary tests, had all the meds, teas etc and my doctor suggested I try coke!

I've been drinking the stuff and find it really helps my throat when its sore. It might not work for you and is only temporary relief but I guess its worth a try!

When it hurts to drink or swallow you need to have the throat checked by your doc to rule out something like strep throat. Otherwise gargle with salt water and try using a spray like cepacol. If you can tolerate aspirin this is also one of the best medications to take for a sore throat. See your doc though first to rule out strep.

Zinc lozenges are an excelent remedy for sore throat, as well as any cold or flu condition. Tangle takes one 23mg zinc lozenge daily for preventive purposes.

Studies show that once zinc is incorperated into cell membranes (in this case the throat), cold viruses or other common pathogens, cannot disrupt that cell's function, owning to a recovery period reduced an average of 50%.
