Gargle with peroxide- it is gross but it kills any bacteria/infection and won't hurt you.Make sure not to swallow or you will puke.
If you have an Asian market locally see if they carry the bottle pictured in this photo http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3458/3401094709_f858f69d9c.jpg it's a natural medicine with a syrupy texture and it REALLY helps kill that ache.
I should also mention that you can buy it online for future use too http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/ASIN/B001FAQXD2 . I get strep a couple times a year minimum and always keep it stocked in my fridge.
My sister used to have chronic sore throat problems due to bruising around her voicebox (she talked a lot at work and had to learn inflection - varying her voice -she would deepen it and keep the same tone) and she started using tea with a lot of honey. I hope you feel better soon.
Echinacea and propolis throat spray. You could also squirt echinacea tincture right inside your mouth/throat every hour or two. That helps!This site has info about it as well as Grapefruit Seed Extract as a gargle:http://www.learningherbs.com/strep_throat_remedy.htmlReally warm/almost hot salt water with a bit of baking soda felt good when I had a bad sore throat, I just had to gargle it every 2-3 hours to get relief when it was at its worst.Last, ginger lemon tea with honey is super easy, cheap and soothing for a sore throat. (I like it with a little garlic clove in there as well) Here's instructions from the above site I mentioned:http://www.learningherbs.com/flu_home_remedy_tea.htmlHope you get some relief soon!!
open your mouth as wide as it will go. then stick out your tongue as far as it will go. Really strain it. Sounds silly but sometimes it can help relieve the pain a bit afterwards
Try a spoonful of honey. My mom used to do this for me when I was a child and I still do it. It definitely helps.Another option, is the lozenges that numb your throat. Those can help take the edge off if you are in a lot of pain.I hope you feel better soon!
Hot tea with honey is the best! Drink it as much as you can, my house has been fighting the same thing all week
Shots of apple cider vinegar. This stuff is absolutely amazing!!!!! It heals us faster than anything. Stings at first but really cleanses the area and speeds healing. You can read about its many many real wonders all over the net.We use the raw organic unfiltered kind, it's the best. Hope you feel better soon
I would try the vinegar and the peroxide remedy, they should work wonders for your sore throat. Another very effective remedy is gurgling water with lemon juice, very concentrated, or pure lemon juice, wash it in your mouth and gurgle it, and your throat should feel great in no time!
Usually it means you are coming down with something. Go out a get some EmergenC and take it 3 or 4 times a day. Whatever you are coming down with will go away. It works wonders!!!!
