In brief: Care

Rest, hydrate well with water & stay far, far away from cigarette smoke.
You can keep mucosa moist with a humidifier. Add honey & a small amt. Of lemon juice to chamomile tea. Slippery elm bark lozenges are another option. Saltwater gargles: mix 1 tsp salt in 8 oz warm water – gargle several times a day.
