    Strawberry fields.
    Gargle with salt water! It hurts, I know, but it helps. [​IMG]

    ETA:

    Warm salt water, 6-8 times a day. [​IMG]

    Salt water is most handy. Lemon water is good too,though I swallow that.Also,grapefruit seed extract added to water to gargle.It tastes nasty,but kills germs.I swallow that SOMETIMES. I eat some fresh garlic cloves.Good for bacterial infections.Speedy healings!

    Got this for three weeks now with a dry cough. Allergies big time. Seems like a never ending problem for me.

    Fresh honey is good for sore throats.

    Agree with the honey remedy. Might also want to try alcohol (listerine gargled at the back of your throat) and then there's the good ole Chloraseptic.
