I have a really, really bad sore throat right now, but it's not strep. Anyone have any remedies for it? I've already chugged a bunch of orange juice and drank like 3 cups of tea.

Strepsils.

Sorry to be the bringer of bad news, but I've had a week+ cold that started out as just a bad throat. It sucked.

Just stay away from cold drinks!

My Mum always says I should have a salt & warm water gargle. Yuck. Dunno if that works cos it makes me gag.

I've found nothing works. I was chewing enough Strepsils to make my entire mouth go numb, didn't help. Just drink a lot and wait it out seems to be all that works...
I'm a communist. Really.

Salt and warm water is really a waste of time; You have relief for maybe 5 minutes before it dries out and you start feeling sore again.

Best thing to do is ride it out. Put on a movie, a video game, whatever your pleasure, and try not to either swallow or think about it.
Is it a bad thing if one of your testicles is larger then the other two?

I've got a killer sore throat too right now... tonsels are swollen up like liferafts... or some other bad analogy. Got a splitting headache to go with it.

The pharmacist recommended that soluble paracetemol stuff, gargle it and then just drink it. Didn't do much for me, but might work for you. Might wanna try heating up some whiskey and honey in a pot and drinking that, that's generally a good remedy.

Peace

Drink hot milk and honey, together. It really soothes it, not permanent but it works a charm for an hour or so.

Hot water, honey and lemon is what I normally drink. doesn't taste too bad, but you have to have proper honey, not some plastic squeezy bottle yuk...


I've been told semen helps relieve sore throats. But I do not condone this.

That's what you get for deep throating


But tea is awesome when you have a sore throat.

All I can say is, I hope it ain't tonsillitis. I had it recently, started as a sore throat, escalated to the point I couldn't eat, drink, breathe without it hurting. Didn't sleep for days. My brother told me to gargle whiskey, which didn't work but I still got through a bottle in a couple of days.... just A Bad Thing.

To check it isn't this look in a mirror at your tonsils. Any sign of a white lump anywhere and you're in for a rough time
#19
Do a few shots, no joke it will help.

It won't make it stop hurting immediatley but tommorow morning it will be much better. I always do that when i feel a cold or sore throat coming on because alcohol is the only substance that kills ALL living cells. They say theres no way to make strep go away, a few shots of 151 never did so much good.
