In brief: Sore throat

Saltwater gargles: mix 1 tsp salt in 8 oz warm water – gargle several times a day.
Or gargle with aloe vera juice twice a day. Add honey & a small amt. Of lemon juice to chamomile tea. Boil freshly sliced, peeled ginger root in water until the tea is tan. Add 3 tbsp of honey. Sip to help relieve sore throat pain.

For significant sore throat with swollen tonsils / lymph nodes – see physician & get a strep throat test / culture. Consider Tylenol or nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory medications.
