    Absolutely hate being sick. Hot soup didn't help my throat, don't have any good candies, I'm stuck. Honey tea hurts my throat, swallowing food or drink hurts in general.
    I don't like chicken noodle either.

    Help me.. The fastest cure would be good too.

    I'm not brave enough to try, but do some research on a cayenne pepper gargle. It's SUPPOSED to work wonders...[​IMG]

    Pineapple - juice, canned, fresh, reduces swelling and eases pain.

    Chloraseptic. Before you do it though take a hot bath, it helps soothe your throat.

    What's the cause of the sore throat? I had a sore throat all week last week. It was so bad by Saturday I couldn't swallow anything but liquid and it was hard to swallow too. Finally went in and found out I had strep. Cost 90.00 for the visit and the test. Two days later the anti biotic had the swelling gone.

    If you have strep it is very dangerous for people around you. A doctor would be the best cure.
