MC

Gargle with cayenne pepper and water mixture: 1/2 - 2 tsp. cayenne per glass of water, as strong as you can stand. Repeat as necessary, multiple times a day. Numbs and releives really bad sore throats.

I'VE TRIED THIS AND IT HELPED ME FOR ABOUT TWO MINUTES ALONG WITH A FIRE HOT PAINFUL MOUTH. BESIDES NOW I HAVE CHRONIC TONSILITIS.I WOULD NOT RECOMEND THIS UNLESS YOU CAN EASILY DEAL WITH THE HOTNES FROM THE CAYENNE. I WOULD RECOMMEND AN ORGANIC TEA.

My father taught me the cayanne pepper remedy and it works everytime! Sure it is hot but it will get rid of your sore throat so much faster!

Itried this no more than about ten minutes ago. I have had sore throats in the past but never one that hurt so bad it to where my voice changed too. I tried this remedy and YES it's very hot, but if your pain before was intese, then the hottness is nothing compared. It worked quite well. I wouldn't give it too my younger kids, but teenagers and aduts, Yes!

After suffering from a sore throat the last two days i finally looked for help online. I mixed about 1 tsp. of cayenne and about 8 oz. of water and gargled every fifteen minutes for about 2 hours or so and then before i went to bed. I woke up this morning and my thoat feels 80-90% better! i would recommend this solution to anyone and if you can get threw a couple minutes of minor burning (no more than the same feeling after eating a hot chicken wing) you will be pleasantly surprised!

If you want similar results without as much burn, try gargling with warm heavily salted water (you can even 'blow bubbles in salted water to rid of runny nose/ nasal drip that can irritate throat). I believe that thats why chicken noodle soups help also, because of high salt. Gargling with mouth wash works, too.
