If you have a sore throat already, to make yourself and your throat feel better there are some options:
- Try to avoid alcohol. The idea that alcohol 'disinfects' the throat is a myth! In fact, drinking alcohol is much more likely to irritate than soothe a sore throat
- Swallow - it might hurt but its one of the best things you can do because saliva is a natural lubricant so it helps soothe a sore throat
- Sucking an effective medicated lozenge can help lubricate the lining of the throat further bringing real, noticeable relief. Check out the Strepsils range to find remedies for a sore throat.
