Treating A Sore Throat

Fact Checked

Warm Salt Water

  • Heat water and blend in a little salt. Let it cool down and gargle it.
  • Almost instantly, you will feel better from the raw feeling in your throat.
  • Occasionally, if there is some phlegm stuck in the throat cavity, you’ll find that it becomes easier to bring it up after gargling some salt water.
  • If you feel a small ache in the throat along with a itchy feeling, gargling with some aspirin tablet in the salt water might also offer some relief.
  • Aspirin is a great anti-inflammatory medication and this will decrease the inflammation in the throat that is accountable for the pain to give you a soothe feeling.
    When mucus cells in the throat become dehydrated, they cause irritation and this might cause a person to start coughing.

Breathe In Steam

  • Usually, a sore throat is escorted by nasal blockage; if you are able to get rid of the phlegm that has gathered in the nose, your coughing will also stop.
  • The best method to do this is to place your nasal cavity and throat to hot air.
  • Breathing steam is very helpful to get rid of phlegm that has collected in the nasal cavity.

Stay Hydrated

  • When mucus cells in the throat become dehydrated, they cause irritation and this might cause coughing.
  • So make certain you drink adequate fluids to keep the membranes moist.
  • With some individuals, a cold can lead to secretions from the nose which moves down the back of your throat – a disorder known as a postnasal drip. If these secretions are thick, they tend to become stuck within the tissues which will lead to coughing.
  • Liquids help to decrease the stickiness of these secretions, making it simpler for them to flow down the throat.
