Have post nasal drip sore throat and body aches. What's the best course of treatment? Will it go away on own? Thank you,

Ofte time the antiseptic mouthwashes if gargled daily can improve the situation. The body aches can also resolve simply with excedrin. Drink fluids. See a doctor if worried. ...Read more
