Hi.... Rest. Get plenty of sleep and rest your voice.... Drink fluids. Drink plenty of water to keep the throat moist and prevent dehydration..... Try comforting foods and beverage. Warm liquids — broth, caffeine-free tea or warm water with honey can soothe a sore throat.... Gargle saltwater. A saltwater gargle of 1 teaspoon. Gargle the solution and then spit it out... Humidify the air. Use a cool-air humidifier to eliminate dry air that may further irritate throat.....
