Management of a sore throat
Pain relief is the primary factor that a person with a sore throat seeks help for.
Soothing FoodsIf you need an excuse to eat ice cream, a sore throat is a good one. The cold has a numbing effect, and the creamy texture makes it easy to swallow. This comfort food is also great for cheering up young (and not-so-young) patients. Other soothing foods include milk shakes, gelatin, and hot soup. With severe sore throats, it's best to avoid crunchy or spicy foods.1
Persistent Sore ThroatIf a sore throat lasts over a week or gets worse, check with your doctor. A persistent sore throat could also be a sign of acid reflux, mononucleosis, or another condition.1
