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.
