    Eat healthy, drink clear fluids, and get plenty of rest. About all you can do.

    David gave you some good advice, Den. That's probably what your doctor would say.

    mhall6252 replied to NWSmom4g's response:
    If your sore throat lasts longer than a couple of days or if you have a fever, you should contact your doctor. You may need to have your throat cultured to determine if you have strep. It's highly contagious and you don't want to spread it to others.

    Plenty of fluids, soft foods, Tylenol and gargling with salt water may bring some relief. You should stay away from orange juice and milk. The OJ will raise your glucose and milk does nothing for a sore throat. I understand wanting OJ with a sore throat. If you really need to drink it, dilute it - water with just a little OJ for flavor and lots of ice.
