Any home or OTC remedies for a bad sore throat?

I'm such a baby..but my throat feels swollen it hurts so bad, plus my glands are a bit inflamed. I've been popping lemon honey cough drops like crazy, using sore throat spray, drank echinacea tea and hot cocoa, and gargled with salt water but have gotten NO relief from any of them. Any suggestions? I've had this only since earlier today but want it to go away! Thank you..

  • Hot lemon water chased by a spoonful of honey. Everytime I say that I want to sing like Mary Poppins, " A spoonful of sugar helps the medicine go down, medicine go down....."
