Sore Throat Relief

Because most sore throats are caused by an infection with a virus, the body can generally cure the infection within about two to five days (without the need for antibiotics). However, in the meantime, there are some things you can do at home to find relief from a sore throat.
 
Some of the best ways to help relieve discomfort from a viral throat infection are to get plenty of rest and drink fluids. Other options for decreasing symptoms include:
