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 — and cold treats such as ice pops 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 a sore throat or sit for several minutes in a steamy bathroom.

Consider lozenges. Lozenges can soothe a sore throat. Because lozenges are a choking hazard for young children, don't give them to children age 4 and younger.

Avoid irritants. Keep your home free from cigarette smoke and cleaning products that can irritate the throat.
