Sore throats are awful on top of a runny nose and a cough. Here is a wonderful remedy I use when I have a sore throat and works every time.

You need lime/lemon, honey, and cayenne pepper POWDER.

- Squeeze the lime/lemon juice out (I squeeze about half a cup)
- Pour a tablespoon of honey into the lime/lemon juice
- Add the cayenne pepper POWDER into the juice. You must add until the juice is pretty red/ Spicy enough that you can take it.

It will burn at first but I can guarantee that your sore throat will be gone and will be feeling better in minutes. Make sure it is not drunk on an empty stomach. Enjoy!

My sore throat has already gone away and it lasts for awhile :)

Believe it or not, gargling with cayenne pepper is an amazing sore throat remedy. The trouble is, some people find the spicy solution a bit too much to bear. If you can take the heat, though, you will feel fast relief from sore throat irritation and discomfort. What you’ll want to do is mix 4 -5 shakes of Cayenne pepper with a cup of very warm water. Add a drop or two of lemon juice and gargle deeply. Spit out the liquid and repeat until all the liquid is gone. Your mouth WILL be hot! Do not drink milk, or any other beverage, to try to cool down your mouth. Instead, you can hold a tablespoon of yogurt on your tongue until the discomfort subsides, and then spit it out. For best results, repeat this sore throat remedy at least once an hour.

Listerine freshens our breath because it kills the bacteria that causes it in the first place. But did you know that it can also be used as a sore throat remedy? That’s right! Gargling with Listerine will help kill bacteria in your throat, relieve sore throat pain and discomfort, and, of course, freshen your breath too. When using this remedy, avoid the mouthwash with whitening action. Use the regular antiseptic. Gargle several times a day for best results. If the taste of Listerine is too strong for you, you can gargle with 1/2 warm water and 1/2 Listerine. For an extremely bad sore throat, add a cap-full of hydrogen peroxide to the mix too.

As a child, your mother likely advised you to gargle with warm water and salt. Mother knew what she was talking about, because this is one of the best sore throat remedies. Why? The warm salt water relieves painful inflammation and helps to draw out the phlegm that is often the cause of a sore or irritated throat. Add 1 - 1 ½ teaspoon of regular salt to a glass of warm water and stir well. Gargle so that the water reaches the back of your throat and then spit. Do NOT swallow the salt water! For best results, gargle one every hour with a fresh batch of very warm salt water.

Have you ever noticed that when your throat hurts, warm beverages help soothe the discomfort? That’s because the warmth of the liquid soothes the throat in the same way a heating pad soothes a sore muscle. Some hot beverages make a better sore throat remedy than others. For instance, hot tea with honey is a highly effective sore throat remedy that tastes good too. For best results, drink a hot tea infused with ginger and a touch of honey. Sip slowly, gently clearing your throat with each sip. This will help open up and provide some relief from the pain.


I hope I've helped, my mother is a doctor and even though she's a doctor, she believes in home remedies before antibiotics.
