Uncertain: There is supposed to be an old fashioned remedy with warm milk , butter, honey, & sugar. I have no idea how effective it is . I usually recommend warm salt water for gargling.

I've been getting a sore throat immediately after consuming sugar for about 2 weeks now. Am I allergic? Why is this happening?

Sugar: Stop taking your sugar for a few days. If things are better - OK. If not, please see your primary doctor as soon as you can.
