Salt water: Salt walter gargles, tylenol (acetaminophen) and Ibuprofen can all be very helpful in relieving sore throats. However, if the pain is severe or the symptoms persist, then you should see your doctor for further evaluation.

Relief: For significant sore throat with swollen tonsils / lymph nodes – see physician & get a strep throat test/ culture. If you have strep throat, antibiotic therapy is imperative to prevent future complications. Consider tylenol (acetaminophen) or nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory medications. Saltwater gargles: mix 1 tsp salt in 8 oz warm water – gargle several times a day. Or gargle with aloe vera juice twice a day.
