Anything to take for sore throat?

I'm 13 weeks and I have viral pharyngitis it feels like I swallowed 15 knives at once. In so much pain! Does anyone know if I can take anything for this?! Just using halls, cepacol with benzocaine and Tylenol.

  • You probably already know this one, but I swear gargling with hot salt water is so helpful. It always makes me feel better. Also, a teaspoon of honey sometimes helps. And Popsicles.

  • Someone at work told me to eat mini marshmallows.. helps with sore throats. Sounds weird, but she swears by it!!

  • Thanks all!! Using the salt water gargle and Popsicles.
  • Try drinking hot boiled water with lemon juice and honey. Lemon kills infection and honey soothes the throat
