  • Tea with honey and lemon.

    My usual remedy for a sore throat is Bailey's Irish Cream, but I wouldn't suggest that for a 5 year old. :D

  • not sure what area you are in but all three of my kids 8 5 and 2 have strep with very little symtoms except for sore throat.. I'd try the remedies suggested but if still complaining about it, I think it's worth a trip to the ped..I live in So. Indiana and strep is horrible hear.. I have never had it and I am being treated..GL
