Default Sore Throat problems

Anybody ever have sore throat problems? This is my second one in about 5 weeks. I get 4-5 a year and they suck really really bad. Is there something that causes them besides the weather?

What is the best non-prescription medicine to use and best throat lozenges?

sorry these suck and just wanted to know.

Ricola throat lozenges

The other thing to do is gargle with warm salt water

Try Bee propolis, collodial silver, or oil of oregano. All are anti-bacterials. Also be careful what you put in your mouth. Always wash hands.

I don't know how bad the pain your feeling is, but I had throat problems in January that never seemed to go away. Eventually I had to have my tonsils removed. In your case it could just be a result of being sick, but if the pain is very bad like mine was, maybe you should get it checked out.

I get this a lot. It feels like your swallownig shards of glass. Not fun. I use this throat spray, its only a quick fix, but it helps get me through it. Gargling salt water is always a good idea too.

That was exactly what I was feeling. Sometimes you can get through it, but sometimes your tonsils just get filled with the bacteria and there's nothing you can do about it but to have your tonsils removed, depending on how often this happens to you.

maybe i dont do that enough. I eat a combination tomatoes, broccoli and carrots every day for dinner. Plus i drink orange juice and apple juice a lot.

I think it may just be drainage for me. That crap is gay. Thanks for the help tho. ill try it.
