    Slowly swallowing a tablespoonful of honey is helpful. You can also take painkillers such as Ibuprofen if it's really bad. I hope you feel better soon

    Get hot water and put a squirt of lemon juice and a spoonful of honey into.it. Let them mix together. It really works, but don't drink stuff afterwards because this will wash the soothing coating of stuff away that will line the inside of your throat. Cough sweets work on the same principle but hot water/lemon/honey mix is cheaper and more comforting Hope your throat feels better soon.

    This works like magic:

    Have you heard of cider vinegar?

    Well add a tablespoon of cider vinegar and a table spoon of honey and mix together and sip the mixture slowly. It will start to feel better in no time.

    If you don't like the the taste you can add some hot water into the mix.

    I advise drinking a good liqueur to coat your throat.

    If it doesn't help, just keep drinking until you are so wasted you forget about your sore throat.
