Just had some Throat coat tea and it did nothing. Took some Tylenol what else will help?

  • When I have a sore dry throat I usually get Thayer's Slippery Elm throat lozenges from the natural foods section at the store. That doesn't completely work for pain though so I usually take something for the pain as well.

  • Regular hot tea with honey and lemon, and peppermint if you've got other flu stuff going on, too. Other than that, can you send someone out for chloraseptic spray? Tastes horrible but it works.

  • Halls with menthol? I have no clue what "throat coat tea" is. I usually stick with Lemon (and hibiscus) and Honey.

  • Seriously tho I have this stuff with benzocaine in it that you use to prolong sex. It numbs toothaches and sore throats and teething babies, too.
