9 Comments for the Sore Throat Home Remedy

God's Child

I came down with a minor sore throat and as the day progressed it got worse. I started sucking on Halls drops for the rest of the day. This gave temporary relief to the discomfort but wore off quickly. The next morning when I awoke, my throat had gotten much worse, I could barely swallow.

I began to read up on some home remedies and put a little of this and a bit of that together. The end result got rid of the sore throat and the next morning I awoke with no sore throat. I still did the remedy the following day, just to avoid it coming back.

First, I gargles with an antiseptic mouthwash for 60 seconds and repeated that. Second, I gargles with a mixture of hydrogen peroxide and water 50/50 for 60 seconds. Then I rinsed my mouth well with water only. Thirdly, I drank a cup of hot tea with lemon. (I was out of fresh I used a packet of lemon I had in the cabinet.) Finally, I ate a 1/2 cup of ice cream.

I did this that morning and did nothing the remainder of the day. I finished the day out eating and drinking as normal. The following morning I had no sore throat but I repeated these four steps to prevent a recurrence of the sore throat.

Good luck and God Bless!!! I hope you found this to be insightful and helpful :D

IVE got a Play and a sore throat

I probably won't gargle with the mouthwash and I have a play TONIGHT! But if I eat icecream, don't talk much, and maybe suck on ice cubes or caugh drops do you think it will work? Cause I desperately need it to


OMG! THIS ACTUALLY WORKED!! Haha, but I don't think up repeated the step for reoccurances, I think it was for the ice-cream! LOL! JK... (:

i really hope this will work right now i am drinking hot water and lemon juice it soooths it but no for long i hope this will work


I just tried this and my throat feels so much better! THANK YOU!!!!


I've been suffering with a terrible sore throat for the past three days. My doctor said it was viral (not bacterial). So, she did not prescribe antibiotics. This morning when I woke up I was almost in tears over the pain. I did an internet search for home remedies and found this. IT WORKED (before I even got to the ice cream step)! I feel like a new person. If the pain returns, I will keep repeating the steps until I'm fully cured. THANK YOU!


In addition to the steps recommended here, I took a table spoon of raw honey. That seemed to help too.


I tried this and am now in alot more pain and soreness. I followed your directions except I'm a bigger person so I figured more ice cream was necessary! But now my throat hurts higher in the back of my neck, and to swallow burns like a hot sauce. Oh fml.


IT WORKS!!! I'd gargled with Listerine all day until it started burning, maybe 10 seconds, then spit it out. The relief didn't last very long and by tonight pain got worse. In desperation I came online searching.

This worked for me after the peroxide. I felt relief, the tea was soothing, but I passed on the ice cream. I liked the warm feeling left by the tea. The cold would remind me of the slicing pain I felt all day.

I don't know how long this relief will last, but IT WORKED. God Bless you for the genius idea to combine these remedies.


Also, I had the tea without sugar, just regular tea and 100% lemon juice from the bottle not from concentrate.
