  • I've just gotten over that. I found no relief from over the counter anything, and I tried lots of them; spent way too much money. I had to just wait forever (12 days)for the penicillin to start working.

  • There are sprays for your throat to numb it. Why not take some Tylenol?? Tea with honey and lemon can help as well.

  • My Dr. gave me a prescription of something to completely numbed my mouth throat.... everything went completely numb good stuff but tastes terrible. Call your Dr. and ask if they can call anything in for you.
    I also use a mouthwash with tea tree oil in it that works really well.
    Get some cough drops....I also have some with tea tree oil in them with lemon and honey..They are awesome!

  • When my husband had it he was prescribed a gargle that killed the pain. I know Tylenol makes a sore throat liquid. It is blue. My husband said it really works.
