How to Cure a Sore Throat Naturally

Viral infections that result in sore throats include the common cold, mononucleosis, laryngitis, mumps and flu. Bacterial infections that cause sore throats include strep throat, tonsillitis, and inflammation of the epiglottis or uvula. In rare cases, sore throats are caused by sexually-transmitted diseases such as gonorrhea or chlamydia. Allergies may also result in sore throats, as can smoking, acid reflux, and injury to the back of the throat. While sore throats often clear up on their own, they are still painful and occasionally a symptom of a more severe issue. It’s also important not to treat viral sore throat infections with antibiotics, as such medication does not cure viral illnesses and may result in allergic reactions. Luckily there are many home remedies that bring blessed relief and speed up the healing process.
