Sore Throat Cures?

Hey guys, I have a really bad sore throat, and it's really bothering me. Do you know of any do-able cures that actually work? I have tried having soup and cough drops but it's getting worse. Any cures would be great!

I doubt it was from that. Strep was going around my school.

Avoid excessive swallowing (lozenges only work while they are there, but they irritate on the way down and make it worse in the long run); but a little tea with honey and lemon is always good could go to a doctor, that just MIGHT help
oh and btw i just looked in my survival guide, natural cures (not as effective though as modern day medicine) for sore throat/cold/respiratory complaints are (not these are all plants)

angelica= decoction of the roots
bilberry= infusion of leaves and fruits
borage= infusion of whole plant except for root
burdock= decoction of the roots
comfrey= infusion of the whole plant
horseradish= raw roots
lime= infusion of the flowers
nettle= infusion of the leaves
oak= decoction of the bark; use to gargle
plantain= infusion of the leaves and stems
poplar= infusion of the leaf buds
rose= decoction of the rose hips
willow= decoction of the bark

now if you get at all sick from any of these (which im confident you wont but i just wanna say just to make sure im not liable IF you do) dont blame me....all those cures were in my SAS Survival guide.

gargling with warm salt water usually helps but i haven't gotten a sore throat in years probly because i put cayenne pepper on just about everything i eat including oatmeal,malto-meal,eggs chili,spaghetti just about everything.i think i might try it on ice cream.sounds good ,spicey hot cold ice cream.also when you drink water,soda,beer or anything else out of bottles or cans,wipe'em off real good.
