A sore throat refers to an itchiness or irritation in the throat, the pain is a symptom of sore throat. Although it may get worse when you eventually try to swallow especially solid food. Sore throat is painful and might even prevent you from sleeping, but then there are ways to handle it.
Most times when kids or even adults complain of itchiness in the throat we immediately rush to the pharmacy or medicine cabinet to get a drug or two. But today I will expose you to some natural remedy that can combat the sore throat at home.
In some cases, medicine may help the person feel better, that’s if it’s very serious. But if it’s not, you can use some of the natural sore throat remedies for kids and adult I will show you today.
Now, the first step to take is make sure the patient rests and gets plenty of water to drink. The extra fluid thins the patient mucus and this helps it to drain and it can also ease the sore throat. I would advise you try a variety of fluids like warm water, tea with lemon and honey or even chicken soup.
This approach has helped me several times, one time I recommended it for a friend whose 5 years old son had a sore throat and couldn’t sleep, guess what it worked magic and the boy was fine after taking tea with lemon and honey.
Anyway, let us go through the main remedies that ease sore throat. Let’s begin;
1. Gargling with Salt Water
3. Marshmallow Root
4. Baking Soda Gargle
Although saltwater gargle is common, gargling baking soda mixed with salt water can also be effective. Gargling this kills the bacteria and prevents the growth of fungi and yeast. ¼ teaspoon of baking soda and 1/8 spoon of salt should be taken every three hours.
5. Apple Cider Vinegar
