This is by far the best remedy - wont let u down

Take a glass of milk and add the desired amount of sweetner or sugar. Then add 1 tea spoon of turmeric powder. This is quite cheap and available in all Indian Stores all over the world.
The milk should be warmed to a point where it is drinkable.
Drink this before bed time at night.
You will turn from a toad to a nightingale overnight.

This actually works on pain relief for sore throat

Eat or drink the highest quality dark chocolate. Try to get 70% cocoa with minimal sugar.

Chocolate in recent studies is shown to me MUCH more effective than narcotic medications.

Maalox can dull the pain as well.

Drink plenty of Green Tea for added benefits.

Speedy Relief

It's true that gargling with peroxide is great for a sore throat but for extra relief after the peroxide, let an aspirin disolve down your throat. I would not recommend this for a child.

Salted Plain Youghurt

For bacterial based sore throats, just mix a little salt (c.1/4 teaspoon) with a good plain youghurt (1/4pt), stir and then sip it slowly over 10-15mins, letting the youghurt rest on the sore thorat. The salt and 'good' bacteria work to kill the bad bacteria and therefore the infection. (Generally it takes just one night and it's similar to a 'Salted Lassie')

hydrogen peroxide

Simply Gargle with hydrogen peroxide 3x daily and it will not only relieve your symptoms but it kills the bacteria back there as well. It tastes terrible, and makes you foam at the mouth, but it works very well. Also at approx. 49 cents a bottle it's cheap too..

sore throat help

ever since i was little my mom told me to gargle with a teaspoon of apple cider vinegar 3 times a day and my throat would get better in 1 day or 2. i never thought of it much until i was married had no health insurance and 2 kids , i gargled with it for 2 days for 3 times a day and my throat was instantly better, the taste is gross but i'd rather taste the vinegar than get a shot in the hip! hope this helps you!
