Yet I can't find anything for a sore throat. It's not scratchy sore...it hurts!! I haven't gone upstairs yet, but I'm wondering if Advil will help it? I know I ave DayQuil up there but I know DayQuil is either for runny nose or sore throat...not both and I can't remember which. I can't take NyQuil...I have a bad reaction to antihistamine. HELP!!

Advil will help I think. Its like Ibuprofen right? I swear like EVERYONE has sore hurts. Mine has lasted like 2 wks. How about you?

Me and my husband have both been sick since before Christmas...yet the kids haven't gotten anything. We are so sick of being sick. It has just been stuffy noses but tonight my throat hurts so bad.

Hot tea with honey and ginger is great for a sore throat.  Ginger is a natural painkiller, and honey reduces inflammation.  I'm certainly not against medications, but this is what I've found works best for me when I have a sore throat.

I have zero of those ingredients in my house right now otherwise I would be trying it out. Thanks for the idea though.

I'm not sure. Everyone in our house has been sick on and off since October. I'm really wishing for this winter to be over.
