You can try warm salt water gargles. You can use acetaminophen or NSAIDs for discomfort, if you do not have any medical problems precluding their use.

There are any number of other home remedies, each person has his/her favorite. If you Google "home remedies for sore throat", you can come up with hundreds of suggestions.

Some of the most common include: hot tea; an apple cider, vinegar, honey mixture to sip; increase in fluid intake; steam vents; ice cream; and sucking on garlic.

However, if the home remedies do not take care of the problem shortly or you develop a fever, chills, malaise, you should be seen by a physician. Good luck.
