Hi Lybrate user,
when you are having throat pain
you should completely avoid cold water and cold items
you should do gargling with hot water mixed with salt.
Honey may be added to hot water or tea
and lemon to help sooth a sore throat
Use a warm compress on the neck
Add fresh garlic
to your diet
or chew a clove of garlic.
Take hot milk
at bed time mixed with pinch of turmeric
