1. Gargle with Warm Salt Water - it's an old fashioned remedy but most effective. Do it morning and night and during the daytime when throat pain is just too much! 1/2 tsp salt dissolved in 1/2 cup warm water and gargle. Simple as that!
2. Drink Warm Drinks - not only does this soothe the throat but aides in re-hydrating the irritated, dried membrane of the throat.
3. Speak at a Normal Level - never whisper to 'save the voice' or when you have a sore throat! Whispering overworks throat muscles - not good!
4. Treat The Cause of the Allergy - see a specialist to learn exactly what you are allergic to. You may actually have a Post-Nasal Drip which can be managed. Learn about this in my next blog.
