In brief: Dried Orange Peel
Is one ingredient used in mixtures with traditional chinese medicine.
Although this may help with sore throats, for significant sore throat with swollen tonsils / lymph nodes – see physician ; get a strep throat test/ culture. If you have strep throat, antibiotic therapy is imperative to prevent future complications.

In brief: It may, But......
The most important think is to get the right diagnosis for your sore throat, specially if chronic.
At your age strep is less likely but you should see your family physician. Once anything serious is ruled out, there are people who really believe that dried orange skin chinese meds help sore throat, then try it.

In brief: Yes
The extract from orange skin is called limonene and it is very good for chronic coughs and sore throats.
It is also helpful with bowel irritation in inflammatory bowel disease. It is very pungent so mix with orange juice when taking these.
