I have had an extremely severe sore throat for 5 days now, i usually get them like 30 times a year or more seriously, but this one has got to be the worst one i've had, normally by now i'm sitting in the ER but decided not to go this time unless I have to. I have tried just about everything i could get my hands on for remedies but for the past 2 days i have using some citrus flavored alka seltzer, it tastes really nasty to me and makes me want to gag and puke but i swallowed my pride so i could swallow that stuff....my boyfriend gave me 4 in a big glass of water the first time, i also took some ibprofin and swallowed half a clove of garlic, that night i slept like a baby...the next day (yesterday) I took 2 alka seltzer in 4 oz of water like your supposed to and it did almost as good as the first time...it does not take your pain away completely but it does make it really really bearable....it is the only thing that has helped me...I also have been spraying my throat with sore throat spray like crazy and i even started gargling it which helped extremely well also before bedtime....and have been using cough drops today which seem to be helping, i also gargles salt water and i mean alot of salt water...also i have noticed that keeping my throat wet with liquids (soft liquids, no soda or anything like that) helps to...good luck to u guys...I know what your going through since i get them so much its horrible....

If you are getting sore throats so often, you may want to consider having your tonsils removed. If you're constantly getting infected it probably means that your tonsils are full of dead tissue and are just a seed bed for germs and infections.

The Box Holds All

If you get sore throats that bad and that often, you maybe could think about getting your tonsils removed. Your article reminded me of ME before I got my tonsils removed, and now I haven't gotten a sore throat in at least 5 months! Getting them removed has seriously been a life changer for me.

Wow! I'd hate to get that many sore throats a year and very bad ones too! When you go to the doctors, does he prescribe an antibiotic like penicillin or amoxicillin? I wish they sold those babies in the stores, would save us alot of pain and money from having to go to the doctors all the time.
