Step 1: Salt Water Gargle

Although nothing beats the saltwater gargle. Dissolve a half-teaspoon salt in a glass of warm water, gargle and spit out. Repeat up to four times a day.

Step 2: Baking Soda

gargle with a baking-soda solution. Dissolve one-half teaspoon of baking soda in a glass of warm water.

Step 3: Buy a New Tooth-brush

With a sore throat that seems to come back time and time again, buy a new toothbrush. Bacteria collect on the bristles, and if you keep using it germs can enter your system and re-infect you.

Step 4: Herbal and Supplaments

vitamins C and E and D are anti inflamitory, the minerals zinc and magnesium, and immune-boosting herbs such as goldenseal and the root of ginger. 

Step 5: Honey

Honey has long been used as a sore-throat remedy. It has antibacterial properties, which can help speed healing.

    I really liked the idea of buying a new toothbrush. Where did you get that idea?

    I don't know if you refer to aphtas (I don't speak English).

    For aphtas, the only effective solution in my 66 year, is Levamizol. You must ask your medician for it.
