Soothing minor sore throat pain

To help relieve a sore throat, try the tips below. However,
see your doctor if you’re exposed to strep or have any of
these signs or symptoms: fever, nausea, vomiting, swollen
neck glands, difficulty breathing or swallowing, tonsils with
pus, or severe pain that doesn’t improve in a few days.
• Drink lots of liquids
Being well-hydrated helps keep mucus thin and easy to clear.
• Gargle with warm salt water
Mix about a teaspoon of salt with a glass of warm water to
soothe and help clear your throat of mucus.
• Suck on lozenges or hard candy, or chew
sugar-free gum
These products stimulate secretion of saliva, which bathes and
cleanses your throat.
• Consider taking pain relievers
Over-the-counter analgesics such as acetaminophen or
ibuprofen may temporarily help relieve sore throat pain
