In brief: Salt water
Try gargling with warm salty water. Use a teaspoon in 8 oz of warm water and gargle and spit.

In brief: Remedies
I agree with dr. Smith.
Consider making tea with 2 tsp of marshmallow root bark per 1cup of hot water (steep in a covered pot for at least 5 minutes). Drink several times a day or as needed to relieve throat pain. Try adding 2 tsp of slippery elm bark to 1 cup of hot water (steep for at least 5 minutes in a covered teapot). Drink this as needed to relieve pain or a few times per day.
