Drinking Cough syrup: Though you may not have a full blown cough, having some cough syrup will help ease the discomfort. But do make sure that you pick one that does not make you drowsy so that you can go about your daily chores as usual.
Drink more fluids: Having plenty of hydration is vital when you are not well and especially so when the throat is affected. This will ensure the membranes are moist and help fight irritants and bacteria. Pick beverages that are healthy and feel soothing to the throat.
- Drink hot tea: If you get bored of drinking plain water, then switch to herbal tea as this will definitely soothe the throat. Some teas contain peppermint, chamomile or ginger which will help you feel better. You may also drink other teas as these too will help you feel better especially if you add some honey to boost their antioxidant properties.
- Sip in Chicken soup: This is an old wives’ belief that Chicken soup has qualities that will work on fevers and colds. It may as well be true since the broth does have some anti inflammatory qualities, plus drinking it does feel good. Having warm savory liquids is something that your throat longs for when it is sore.
