I highly recommend GINGER TEA. I finally just got over the flu, which I had for too long. But I learned a few years ago, that ginger tea helps so very much. Since, I am used to it now, and actually like the taste, I do straight ginger, ground up and simmered well in water. I even grate big pieces of it. It helps immensely. Also, if it is too strong for you can use smaller pieces, and add honey. Or if still too much, then just add some of the ginger to your regular tea.

the best natural drink for a sore throat is hot milk + the yellowish part of a crude egg (don't know the name in english, sorry) + some suggar. Mix that together (don't worry about the egg, the taste is not bad, i, for one, even like it) and drink it as hot as you can. I had some problems with my throat, especially during winter, coz i sleep with my mouth open, and my throat was sore almost every morning. and this is the best remedy i tried. take care.

Any kind of hot drink will make it feel better. If you have hot tea, that's even better. Honey or honey and lemon in tea will soothe it. Honey works by itself if you don't want tea. Other than that, sometimes sucking on a hard candy will help, unless it's really sore.
