Something else to add to your list of helps for your sore throat. I take a fresh clove of garlic, crush it between two teaspoons and swallow with water like a pill. Do up to 3 x day. (crushing it right before drinking it is essential, as this activates the compounds that do the work) Garlic is a natural 'antibiotic' and most times that I have a sore throat starting up, the garlic seems to kick its butt really fast. I find I don't even get garlic breath if I swig it fast enough. Just hold it between my teeth and then chug it down. (note - if it is a large clove do it in stages, not much fun getting a large clove halfway down!!!! LOL)
