Sore Throat? Drink More

People suffering from sore throats should drink as much as possible.

Doing so moistens the mucous membrane and keeps cold viruses from multiplying, according to the magazine Medicine Today, published by Cologne doctors’ organizations.

Especially useful are herbal teas or hot lemon juice. Other good household cures include gargling with salt water, or chamomile or sage tea.

If the pain lasts for more than three days, a doctor’s visit is recommended. That also applies if there are breathing troubles or exceptionally swollen lymph nodes. -dpa
