Please give me your suggestions regarding throat infections .. what medications you have found best for throat infections ?
(other than Antibiotics please - as it causes lots of side effects to me)
More over please tell me more about the home remedies you use for throat infections like below
1. intermediate symptoms of feelings predicting throat infection.. which usually cause "Fever" ...
2. Advance level symptoms of throat level infects.. of being caught throat .. pain of throat ... difficulty in swallowing... harshness in throat like symptoms...
i have used "Honey" as a home remedy in earlier symptoms .. and its really really effective .. but i want to know if Honey is not available then what should i use for this type of problem
Try gargling with salt water! It works for sore throat pain and helps kill some bacteria, although for a short time.
With honey you could use fresh ginger juice. it really works wonders, try it, please & do let me know.
Take care, be well, best wishes!
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.
