Health Tip: Stop a Sore Throat

(HealthDay News) -- A sore throat can be a side effect of a cold or allergy, or signal something more serious such as strep throat or tonsillitis. A lingering sore throat should be evaluated by a doctor.

Meanwhile, the American Academy of Family Physicians offers these suggestions for how you can help ease sore throat pain:
  • Gargle with a warm salt water solution.
  • Suck on a throat-soothing lozenge or a hard candy.
  • Suck on a Popsicle, or similar frozen dessert.
  • Drink plenty of fluids.
  • Run a humidifier.
  • Take a pain reliever such as ibuprofen, naproxen or acetaminophen
