  • it could be more than just a "sore throat" might be strep which needs treated with antibiotics from your doctor.

  • I agree any sore throat that last longer than a day or two and isn't helped could be serious like strep. Visit a doctor soon just to be sure.

  • Chew gum. It is what my doctor had me to. It increases saliva and thins out mucous. If you don't have an infection that requires antibiotics that should do it

  • Really sour candy or lemon drops, gargle with listerine.
