Sore throat remedies

Need to shake off my sore throat I don't want to go to the doctor for this seems too minor and they got rid of their bulk billing so costs a small fortune. Would love some ideas though.

A shot of whiskey is the best sore throat cure I've come across. Or lemon, honey and bourbon in warm water and sip. Or maybe I just have a drinking problem 🤷‍♀️😂

Gargle your partner's semen. Its full of zinc. Not even joking.

You can try a can of coke, the acidity strips bacterial.
Betadine throat gargle
Warm water with honey
Wrapping a heat pack around your neck
Warm salt water gargle
Lots of water
Vitamin C

Gargle listerine and swish it around on your mouth for as long as you can stand it. Toss out your toothbrush and after using the new one put listerine on it. You have bacteria in your mouth that is sliding down into your throat.

Put Vicks on your neck before bed wrap an old piece of material around your neck like a scarf over the Vick’s every night - works a dream.

Honey in hot water soothed mine and got better by the next day.

Make jello and drink it while it's still warm before it gels
