  • 2) Gargle with warm saltwater. Add 1 teaspoon (5 ml) of salt to 8 ounces (237 ml) of warm water. Gargle for several seconds, spit, and repeat. The salt in the water can draw excess fluid from inflamed throat tissues, making them less painful.

  • 3) Get in a steamy shower or tub for ten minutes. Alternatively, use a cool-air humidifier to moisten the air. Dry air will further irritate your throat.

  • 5) Make ginger tea. Ginger tea is a tea brewed from ginger pieces. It won't necessarily taste great (unless you love ginger!) but it will sanitize your throat and ease the pain.

  • 7) Make a garlic paste. This is an intense but effective way to relieve throat pain. This paste should be swallowed as slowly as possible, so that it has time to work on your throat.
