Definitely ginger and honey tea. I love how the ginger is so spicy and soothes my throat after drinking a cup. Feel better!

@XinfulThotz I am not sure whether ginger is good for the throat but I know one thing for definite - it clears a normal person's stomach of wind

Take high dosage of vitamin C and lots of rest. It should be viral especially with our climate here

@XinfulThotz Basically you need to have enough rest. In fact that's the best way to boost back up your immune system.

Hot coffee might do you some good. Shouldn't think it would make you worse. Go to bed. Stay warm. If it gets worse call a doctor.

@XinfulThotz you went to work!!! Wow. I wouldn't have. Just a thought but if you have something you might spread other people might get sick too.

I think you are suffering from viral infection... Take good rest and medication like paracetamol.. As far as sore throat is concerned gargle with warm water with apinch of salt it will help you

You can gargle with a hot warm water mixed with vinegar and sprinkled with a little salt.

Here the elders tend to think that drinking something like coffee may cause you to have the sore throat. I don't really believe it. If I have a sore throat and if I don't want to take any medicine, then I will try to drink more water. If I can have a good rest, this may be even better. This is the most natural way

i know drinking lots of water is good. but it doesn't really give the ultimate "soothing" effect...

Can't give you any instant remedy for sore throat cause i do not know any traditional medicine for that. When i got sore throat, i always consult a doctor. He then prescribed me CTM, paracetamol, or Amoxylin. Still i need to rest a lot. You can try some recepees given by other myLotters here. Hope you get well soon!

Drink a mug of bone broth or bouillon. That always helps my throat more than tea.

Hot Ginger tea with lemon is effective for me but it is not advisable for pregnant and persons with heart ailment.
