SORE THROAT

SORE THROAT TREATMENT AND CARE


SORE THROAT TREATMENT AND CARE

It hurts to swallow. You keep swallowing to test it, and every time you swallow, it still hurts.

A sore throat can be caused by any kind or irritants that affect the mucous membranes at the back of the throat: allergies, dust, smoke, fumes extremely hot foods or drinks, infections of the teeth or gums. Chronic coughing and excessive misuse of the voice in yelling or singing, with resultant hoarsens, are frequent causes of sore throats.

  • Drink lots of liquids – being well hydrate helps keep mucus thin and easy to clear.
  • Gargle with warm salt water – mix a teaspoonful of salt with a glass of warm water to soothe and help clear your throat of mucus.
  • Drink honey with lemon juice to coat the throat.
  • Take painkillers. Over – the- counter analgesics relieve pain for four to six hour.
  • Rest your voice. If your sore throat involves an inflamed larynx, talking a lot may lead to more irritations and temporary loss of voice.
  • Humidify the air.
  • Avoid air pollutants. Stop smoking.
  • Eat plenty of garlic, a natural antibiotic and antiseptic.
  • Change your toothbrush
