Hi...., avoid smoking, as it will irritate your throat and aggravate the symptoms.... 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.... Gargle saltwater. A saltwater gargle of 1 teaspoon. Gargle the solution and then spit it out..... Consider lozenges. Lozenges can soothe a sore throat...Consider steam inhalation....
