Treat a Common Sore Throat

During CNY you cant resist of keropok, biscuits and all kind of heaty snack? eating too much causes sore throat occur.. and i hv slightly sore throat too.. but no worries here's the solution hope it could help u ~

Things You'll Need:

  • Over-the-counter (OTC) pain killer and fever reducer
  • Warm salt water
  • Hard candy or lozenges
  1. Take an OTC pain killer and/or fever reducer such as acetaminophen (brand name: Tylenol), ibuprofen (brand names: Advil, Motrin, Nuprin) or naproxen (brand name: Aleve) to help with the ache and discomfort. These medications will also help bring down any fever you might have.
  2. Gargle and spit warm water (an 8-oz. glass) mixed with about 1 tsp. of table salt. Do not drink it! The warm salt water will bathe your throat, reduce the discomfort and assist in removing any exudate from the back of your throat.
  3. Drink plenty of clear liquids (warm, cool or room temperature--according to your likes and how it feels). Do not consume any food or liquids that cause irritation or coat the your throat, such as dairy products.
  4. Keep your mouth and mucus membranes moist by sucking on lozenges or hard candy (the less sugar, the better though!) You can also rinse out your mouth with clear, warm water.
