What to Do When Your Throat Hurts

Having that scratchy feeling on your throat that hurts when you swallow? That could be a sign that your throat is irritated, inflamed, or even infected.

Most sore throats are caused by viral infections such as the common cold or flu. Some throat problems are generally minor and may go away on their own.

Here are some ways that may help you relieve sore throat:

1.Try hot tea like chamomile tea with lemon or some hot soup. Ginger tea may also help.

2. Gargle with warm salt water that can help soothe a sore throat and break down secretions.     

3. Keep your throat moist with lozenges or water.

4. Stay hydrated. Drink plenty of fluids.

5. Gargle with warm salt water or use ice chips.

6. Throat sprays such as those with propolis and over-the-counter pain relievers can help, too. Propolis has properties that can heal wound effectively like in sore throats.

7. You may use a humidifier or vaporizer, especially when sleeping, to keep air from getting too dry.

If the sore throat persists for several days or is accompanied by fever, please consult your doctor.
