Okay first off, I know UG's not a doctor and I shouldn't seek medical advice on here etc, etc, but right now I could honestly care less.

Anyways, I have the worst sore throat of my life. It always happens around the changing of seasons, and I really can't stand it this time, being that my band has a huge show in four days and I happen to be the lead singer.

I've heard of people gargling cayenne powder mixed with water, and have heard that it gives great results. Does anyone know if this is true? Or does anyone else have any other suggestions for a cure or treatment?

Thanks.

Semen.

On a more serious note, ever heard of lemsip? like a cough drink thing that clears your throat, might be a uk thing but not sure. Try something like that.

If its a bacterial infection then I highly suggest a cigarette. Instantly kills them leaving your throat to heal.

drink milk

Wrong. Bacteria strives off the stuff.

Warm honey should work well as previously suggested if you're not up for something medical. If this persists anyway, go to a doctor, it could be tonsillitis.

for a home remedy get a cup of warm water and put a LOT of salt in it. take a small mouthful and gargle for about 10-15 seconds per mouth full

should do the trick

or buy throat lozenges

the cayenne powder works, you jsut have to do it several times, like every 15 min, then it'll go away. thats what i did at least

Stop talking. Seriously, use the remedies but don't talk and it will heal a lot faster.

Toast. Very dry toast without butter or honey on it.

No, I'm not being a sadist here. It really works. Well, it works for me anyway.
