Hi, Try these strategies: 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 ..Gargle saltwater. A saltwater gargle of 1 teaspoon of table salt .... Humidify the air. Use a cool-air humidifier to eliminate dry air that may further irritate a sore throat...Consider lozenges. Lozenges can soothe a sore throat. .. Avoid irritants. Keep your home free from cigarette smoke and cleaning products that can irritate the throat....Consider antipyretics for fever. Consult Physician if symptoms persists...
