Presuming this is an acute sore throat
, these are usually viral & thus antibiotics won't help (if you have a fever
and fairly swollen glands
it could be strep or another bacterial infection, which can be helped by antibiotics).
My favorite treatments for sore throats are herbs, especially pelargonium sidoides & andrographis. Propolis, made by bees, also helps. See my comment for links & more.
