Cepacol longes: TAke nothing by mouth for 6-12 hours to soothe the vomiting, or see a doctor for some medication. If you don't have a fever and swollen nodes, the sore throat may not need antibiotics, but seeing the doctor and doing tests would make that certain. When you are vomiting you need an injection or rectal suppository to get control of it often

Treat strep: Please see a physician for a throat swab rapid strep screen, if you also have enlarged lymph nodes in your neck, headaches, and no cough or nasal symptoms. Not treating a strep throat can lead to heart disease. A doctor can also prescribe zofran for nausea and vomiting, if needed. Try bland things like crackers if hungry. Drink Gatorade or similar sports drinks, flat sprite or 7up, or try emetrol.

Chloroseptic spray is the best for sore throat OTC. Warm salt water may help kill bacteria. Chicken soup actually does have antiviral properties. Grandma was right.

Can try: Warm salt water gargles or chamomile tea with honey or licorice root lozenges/tea(be careful if you have hypertension) or cepacol lozenges. Try to avoid spicy foods, alcohol, caffeine or nicotine.

Dr. Peltan is correct, as usual. Also, cepastat lozenges have a topical pain reliever. So do Chloraseptic lozenges, with even more of the topical anesthetic, but these are spicier, and to "hot" for some people to be able to keep in the mouth for long.

Mylanta: Mylanta or maalox can help, you can even gargle with it, but if you are having vomiting that severe, you need to see doctor.
