Where I live it’s Fall and is pretty cold and its only October 😛 I feel like it might snow around the end of the month.
A lot of people are also getting sick and I felt like I was sorta getting a sore throat and was looking up stuff so I decided why not put this up as a tip?
So here are a few things that will help sooth a sore throat:
Try it when: You begin to notice a tickle.
You could microwave a few cloves for about 10 seconds (so it taste less yucky) and crush them up and eat it with honey or crackers.
Try them when: You have mild soreness along with a stuffy nose. Pop in one every two to four hours as needed.
Honestly I’m not sure what there are, never seen them before, but they seem like a better and more sick curing thingamajig cough drops. So if you don’t have that suck on a cough drop.
Warm Salt Water//
Try it when: Your throat is feeling sore and scratchy.
Subtitle says it all. The water shouldn’t be hot cause you don’t wanna burn your throat. If you don’t want to drink it try gurgling it.
Also you could try warm water mixed with honey if you want add a few squeeze’s of lemon’s too.
Try it when: The pain persists all day.
Cause it’s warm and soothing.
Over-the-Counter Numbing Spray//
Try it when: Every swallow aches a little.
I used to have one, i think it was Chloraseptic. I might be repurchasing it because it is AMAZING. but all they do is mask the pain 😛 but at least i got sleep.
Try it when: Your throat feels dry.
It’s good to keep this on all night so when your nose gets all stuffy it’ll open up cause of the humidifier. It’s really nice especially because the heater will be on in the winter and that could dry out your nose and throat even more, which isn’t good 😛
&& make sure to keep it clean.
Also take a shower in the morning, cause the steam will help clean up yucky mucus.
Get a lot of rest. That is the time your body will be fighting off germs and working harder then usual. Try sleeping on top of 2-3 more pillows to help improve breathing through out the night.
Get well soon 🙂
