owe question

What do you do when you have a sore throat and you don't want to take any cough medicine (do they even make sugar-free, soy-free, cough medicine?)?

I've tried hot lemon and honey, I've tried gargling with salt, I've even tried a spoonful of brandy. Nothing has worked so far. Any thoughts?

the best cure for a sore throat is gargle with peroxide. It goes away instantly. Do this every time it feels sore again and it will be gone beofre you know it. Hope you feel better

I've got nothing useful to suggest, as I've been dealing with the same thing for the whole week last week, and I've tried pretty much the same things you've tried (except for the brandy - I should keep some handy!), to pretty much the same results.
The only thing that really worked? Time. I told you I had nothing useful to suggest...

Oops, sorry, I forgot to add I hope you feel better soon. If I can't help much, I can at least wish you a speedy recovery!
