    Crush up a paracetamol or two, put it in your mouth with some water and gargle for a while... horrible taste but it works.

    Go to the chemist and ask for Chloraseptic throat spray. This will treat the start of an infection and the anaesthetic it contains will numb your throat. If it's still a bit painful, opt for 2 ibuprofen or paracetamol which will bring down your temperature - personally I'd choose the ibuprofen (take it after food) because it will reduce any swelling.
