1. gargle with salt water 2. tie a gold chain or amber beed around the neck 3. Put a bandage of red flannel 4. Use camphored oil 5. Salt pork with onions sprinkled with pepper 5. Have a check up with physician and take the prescribed medicine There are people (including me) use the home remedies and only when it all fails, I go to physician. What about you?

If I have a sore throat, I usually drink a lot of water trying to get rid of it. Meanwhile I also take some pills that help. I seldom go to see a doctor for this. I usually go to the pharmacy for some medication for my sore throat and I have some herbal medicine. It is usually boiled with water and it helps.

In these small matters, self help is the best. Thanks for your response.

During early signs of sore throat, I immediately apply home remedies like gargling with saline water solution, or drinking ginger mixed with tea or lemon and honey. If the sore throat becomes serious such that I cannot swallow anything anymore because of pain, I would rather take antibiotic as prescribed by a doctor.

I am a doctor's daughter and I do not believe in home remedies and therefore I consult my family physician who prescribes some medicine, depending on the condition and if I do one course, it will be alright.

ME, i do gargle with salt water sometimes, but their are medicines for soar throat that you can buy here in the Phils, even without doctors prescription. So we have a onstock medicine at home, so whenever we have soar throat we have the instant remedy.
