  • I had to call my doc for this exact problem yesterday. It took forever for them to call back but they did .

    They said theres not much you can take, but to try this.

    1 cup water
    1 tsp salt
    1tsp white vinager
    1 crushed up asprin (NOT TYLONAL)
    and gargle it!

    Its really gross, but hey guess what? I dont have a sore throat anymore. They also said if you get a fever to come in.

    Good luck!!

    P.S. im 33 weeks
