Any home remedies for a sore throat?

I'm 29 weeks pregnant so I can't have too much medicine, but this sore throat sucks!

  • I agree, gargle with salt water. Tea with honey may also help.

  • Gargle with salt water, and then take a tablespoon of high quality, locally grown if possible, honey. Don't bother with the stuff in a bottle shaped like a bear.

  • Honey and lemon. I put about a tablespoon of honey in a cup and add about a teaspoon of lemon juice. Mix with a spoon, and then take about a half teaspoon to a teaspoon. The honey soothes and the lemon seems to help clear the throat. Mix honey and sugar in a cup of hot tea, and you have something that will also help the sinuses drain- - blocked sinuses sometimes add to sore throats.

  • Sniffing up warm salt water and spitting it out will help clear your nasal passages. I use a netipot (you can get it in pharmacies) and the premixed salt and baking soda packets. Lean over the sink and pour the solution, using the netipot, into one nostril and let it drain out of the other nostril, then switch sides. It cleans out the nasal passages and helps with sinuses. The reason I am suggesting working on post-nasal drip is that this is what causes a lot of sore throats. If it goes on very long maybe you should call your doctor. Feel better soon.
