Doctor :   Drinking something warm is one of the best remedies for a sore throat. When your throat is sore, warm liquid just feels good going down. And the liquid will help to rehydrate dry mucous membranes, which might help speed up your recovery.
Doctor :   You can drink any warm beverage you like, although it might be best if you steer clear of caffeinated beverages. Herbal teas, decaffeinated coffee, chicken broth, and warm water with lemon and honey are all options.
Doctor :   Gargle With Warm Salt Water - Gargling with warm salt water three or four time a day will ease your sore throat pain and rehydrate dry tissues. Add about half a teaspoon of salt to a full cup of warm water. Gargle for several seconds, then spit. Repeat one or two more times. When you're done, your throat will feel much better.
Doctor :   These are few natural remedies
Doctor :   Are you there?
User :   ok fine thanks
