Having a sore throat can be a real annoyance. Some symptoms of a sore throat include a burning or scratchy sensation in the throat, pain that makes it hard to talk or swallow, a dry throat, and/or sore or swollen glands in the neck or jaw.
Thankfully, there are a variety of home remedies that can relieve a sore throat quickly without the need for one or more store-bought pharmaceuticals. Some of these remedies are:
• Gargling with salt water – Dissolve a half teaspoon of salt into a glass of warm water, gargle, and spit out.
• Drinking honey – Add 2 to 3 teaspoons to a cup of hot water or herbal tea.
• Gargling with baking soda – Dissolve a half teaspoon of baking soda into a glass of warm water, gargle, and spit out.
• Sucking on garlic – Place a clove of garlic in each cheek and then suck on them like they’re cough drops.
The tips above are just some of the ways to naturally heal sore throat symptoms. If a sore throat is accompanied by a fever of 101 degrees or higher, or doesn’t go away within a few days, medical attention should be sought.
