everyone is offering suggestions of things that you can do internally. here is a suggestion that is external. when I was in college I had the worst sore throat I've ever had in my life. the college nurse came to visit me in my room and she offered a very wacky sounding suggestion. she told me to take a small cloth and make it damp, but not drippy, with just plain water. fold it into a size of about 2 by 3 inches. place this cloth on the throat then wrap a scarf or a long sock around your throat and secure it. sleep all night with this on your throat. by morning your sore throat will be gone. I really thought she was crazy. but I was hurting so bad that I decided to try it. it absolutely positively worked! I've done it many times since and it always works. try it you have nothing to lose... but you're sore throat... hope you feel better out there...

My 4 yr old daughter had a very sore throat and cough last night. so I found this and tried it but with a small deviation....I added a pinch of salt inside one side and folded the cloth over it so it wasn't in contact with her skin. She woke me up this morning saying her 'neck was all better' and was running around again at Mach 1 at breakfast. Thanks!


Can I try this in the day time also or only at night


It works. Tried it last night and the sor throat is gone gone gone! Thank you
