    water and fluids to thin mucous if any
    zinc lozenge, honey tea, etc to soothe and shorten duration.. slippery elm can also be used... there's one product called throat coat that has marshmallow, licorice root, and elm bark which works well
    vitamin c to help fight

    if you think it could be strep, probiotics and chill on sugars, dietary fats, and alcohol

    go to a doctor and get a throat culture done to make sure you don't have strep throat.

    A regular sore throat can be strep throat, only way to know is if you get a throat culture done at a doctor where they basically stick a giant Q-tip down your throat and look at the stuff they swabbed under a microscope.

    tips to make your sore throat feel better:

    * Taking ibuprofen (brand names: Advil, Motrin, Nuprin) or acetaminophen (brand name: Tylenol). Children should not take aspirin. Aspirin can cause Reyes syndrome -a serious illness- and in some cases, death when it is used in children under 18 who have the flu.
    * Gargling with warm salt water (1/4 teaspoon of salt in 1 cup [8 ounces] of warm water).
    * For adults and older children, sucking on throat lozenges, hard candy or pieces of ice.
    * Eating soft foods, drinking cool drinks or warm liquids or sucking on Popsicles.

    gargle saltwater. I heard that's the BEST remedy for sorethroat besides actual medicine which typically just relieves the pain and doesn't actually destroy any viruses.
