hi iamsolucky . . Like you I gargle with a little warm salt water . .I tend to do that alot. . its good for the bacteria in your mouth so to keep my gums healthy I got into the habbit of doing that everyday. If my throat gets really bad . .I drink some tea(only time I drink tea;) and I put some honey in it. .. if it is really bad i take the honey put it into some orange juice and then I put in a good shot of jack Daniels hope your throat feels better

I have been having sore throat since past one month, well i also do gargling after every meal that i have and also i make sure i have only warm water......and since its been so long i take some medicines as well......it is now much better......just stay away from any cold stuff, and you will be fine in no time.....try some home made remedies which are available on the net.........that should work !!!!

whenever i have a sore throat i stop drinking cold/refridgerated water. Drinking citric fruit juices can also aggrevate the problem - so try avoiding it. You can probably drink warm mild with turmeric and a pinch of salt (and sugar if you like). I know it may sound a little weird but it is very soothing. Try it and do let me know :)
