5 Soothing Tips for a Sore Throat
Is your throat dry, tickly or scratchy?
You know how it starts: a mild sore throat, followed by difficulty talking or swallowing. You might even end up losing your voice. Does any of this sound familiar?
While a sore throat is an inconvenience for most in their everyday lives, it can be particularly hindering for public speakers, teachers and singers — especially if there’s also a loss of voice.
So if you feel a sore throat coming on, try these tips to help stop it in its tracks:
- Use a humidifier: Breathing in moist air can help soothe swollen tissue in your nose and throat. A humidifier is a great way to increase the humidity in your room.
- Gargle at least once every hour with 1 tsp (5 g) of salt dissolved in 240 ml (8 oz.) of warm water.
- Stay hydrated: Fluids may help dilute secretions and soothe an irritated throat. Hot fluids, such as tea or soup, may help decrease throat irritation.
- Stay at home if needed and plan some low-key activities that don’t involve you having to strain your voice.
- Take care of your body: Take a warm shower or bath, get plenty of rest and drink a lot of water.
