OTC sprays, lozenges
Over-the-counter sprays such as chloroseptic and vics are safe and contain a topical numbing solution which will help relieve discomfort.
Gargling with salt-water can also help, especially if it feels like there is a lot of mucus in your throat. Otc lozenges with menthol, eucalyptus, peppermint, spearmint and/or honey
may also provide relief. Feel better soon!
