PA Live: Sore Throat Treatment January 2, 2018

Wilkes-Barre, PA - Very mild sore throat can come from something as simple as dry indoor air.  That’s an easy fix just sleep with a humidifier.  More commonly it’s not that simple.  Infections from viruses to bacteria can be the cause.  The majority of the time a virus is to blame.  If that’s the case, there is no specific treatment that will make you better any faster. Treating a sore throat is frustrating there’s no magic bullet.  Gargling with warm salt water several times a day can help so can pain relievers like acetaminophen or ibuprofen.
