A sore throat is more prevalent this time of the year because the weather is dry. Thus quite a number of people will be suffering from it. If your saliva goes down like sandpaper, and every cough makes you feel pain, then you have an inflammed throat. Here are some of the remedies for sore throat.

Wash with salt water

Saltwater can calm inflammation by getting rid of the acidity that causes throat irritation. It may also help draw infections or irritants to the surface of your throat, where your body is better able to deal with them. You should gargle every hour or two.

Drink extra-cold liquids

Drink ice cold liquids can both numb your throat and calm some of the inflammation that’s causing you pain.

Avoid acidic foods

Acidic foods exacerbate your sore throat. Therefore, avoid fried foods and citrus fruits like oranges and lemons.

Lemon and water

Mix a teaspoon of lemon juice in a cup water for this home remedy for sore throat. The juice will help shrink swollen throat tissue and create an unfriendly environment for viruses and bacteria so they do not thrive.

Enjoy a drop of honey

Warm tea that is sweetened with honey can help soothe your irritated throat. Tea also keeps you hydrated, which is another important step in treating the condition. Make a cup of tea and add honey to deal with a sore throat.

Stay hydrated

Staying hydrated is an important part of treating a sore throat. When you’re dehydrated, your body can’t produce enough saliva and mucus to keep your throat naturally lubricated. This will make the swelling and inflammation worse.
