Hi..., Rest. Get plenty of sleep and rest your voice....Drink fluids. Drink plenty of water to keep the throat moist and prevent dehydration.... Humidify the air. Use a cool-air humidifier to eliminate dry air that may further irritate a sore throat ... Gargle saltwater. A saltwater gargle of 1 teaspoon of table salt... Consider lozenges. Lozenges can soothe a sore throat...Consult Pediatrician if symptoms persists...
