Sore throat is a common symptom of cold and flu. Usually, common cold symptoms will last from a few days to a week or more before recovering fully without any medical help. But there are some things you can do yourself that may help relieve the symptoms.
REST: Have plenty of sleep and rest.
KEEP HYDRATED: Drink plenty of fluids as this will help keep your throat moist.
TRY COMFORTING FOODS & DRINKS: Warm broth, caffeine-free tea or warm water with honey or cold drinks and ice pops may help to sooth a sore throat.
You can also try medicated lozenges that can provide effective sore throat relief on the go. Try NEW Strepsils Extra, it has an advanced formula that doesn’t just have antibacterial action, but also numbs the pain of inflamed sore throats with anaesthetic action.
