Warm salt water gargle every few hours. Not too much salt.

Add a little peroxide to it also. 2 teaspoons to a glass of water.

herbal tea with lots of honey. Or ask your pharmacist for over-the-counter lozenges that can help numb the pain – there are various brands. If your sore throat lasts for more than 2 days and/or if you get a fever, see a doctor immediately – you may have strep throat and might need antibiotics.

One of the many suggestions is to drink lots of water. Alcohol and caffeine will dehydrate you, apparently.

salt, water and white vinegar works wonders, also works when you have mouth sores

if it is extreme and unbareable, you probably are getting this years ass kickin flu strain. Worse news, antibiotics will not help, just time. I am just getting over it now, felt like I was gonna die, and at some points wished I would just pass out from the pain. Whew…...
