Comment from: eda, 13-18 Female (Patient) Published: June 27

I haven't tried this yet, but everyone says it works so it probably will! Mix half a teaspoon of salt with warm water. I have a sore throat now, and if it's not serious, it will go away with some warm herbal/chamomile tea with honey or a slice of lemon. If it doesn't go away, I think I'll try that saltwater thing.
