Insuff information: Is burning from reflux or constant cough or sore throat? Home, some hot tea w Honey, breathe in the steam. At pharmacy can try cough remedy like Robitussen(aval generic), esp if it has dextromethorphan good to quiet cough. Also taking fairly warm shower & breathing in warm moisture in the air for a while will help inflamed tissues.
