In brief: Gargle with salt/sug

The easiest solution is to gargle with a glass of warm (not boiling) water that has a tsp of salt and about a tbsp of sugar in it.
(Search "rehydration solution" on the internet to get a better recipe). You can add a bit of lemon if you like, but the point of this is to mimic the electrolyte content of "natural" fluid in your body. Warming the solution soothes the throat. It is not a cure, however
