In brief: Sore Throat

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. Consider Tylenol (acetaminophen) or nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory medications. Saltwater gargles: Mix 1 tsp salt in 8 oz warm water – gargle several times a day. Can gargle with Aloe Vera juice twice a day.
