Salt water gargles are truly effective. My mother used to give us honey, lemon juice and a half shot of whiskey which does work (or at least helps you forget how bad your throat hurts) Know this though, if you have strep it can quickly become systemic and deadly without antibiotics. Strep throat is the precursor for Scarlet fever which has been nearly eradicated in this day and age of catching the infection early with antibiotics. Throat infections like this are dangerous if not treated. If the infecting organism is viral then it is fine to treat with home remedies but bacterial infections are best treated with antibiotics. I understand your reluctance to take them as I am the same way, but in some instances they are truly the best course of action.
