How do get rid of a sore throat and tongue?

I have been working ridiculous hours and my throat is very sore - even the back of my tongue feels like I have blisters on them. What can I do?

  • If you're sure it isn't strep that needs an antibiotic, try gargling with warm salt water. This is what we did as kids and it really works.

  • zinc lozenges and honey mixed with cayenne. If you feel really dragged out our feverish, go get a strep test.
