Hydration and cold: Sore throats are typically a result of tonsillitis or pharyngitis or both. Unfortunately there is no smoking gun solution. However, there are things to do to alleviate the discomfort. First, lots of hydration is necessary to expedite your recovery. I recommend gatorade/powerade. Also, try eating or drinking cold stuff to sooth your throat. Popsicles, ice cream. All the best.
