Advice For Sore Throats

The best sore throat remedies including drinking plenty of fluids such as tea with honey and gargling daily with warm salt water. Over-the-counter medication such as paracetamol, ibuprofen, or antiseptic gargles will also provide pain and relief from sore throat symptoms, but may cause unwanted side effects.
More severe throat infections may require prescription medication such as antibiotics to suppress the infection. As antibiotics can not only cause unwanted side effects and other complications, but also rob the body of ‘good’ bacteria. It is important to determine whether they are really necessary, and if you do decide to take them, to replenish the good bacteria by eating live culture yogurt.
