Is there anyone who likes this time of year with the cold and the snow and the ice? And of course, with the cold weather comes sickness, and no one likes that part of winter. There is nothing worse than to have a pile of snow outside while you are indoors, nursing a bad cold or the flu. One of the worst parts of being sick is the sore throat pain you can get. If you have experienced this, you know how awful it can be. Here are just a few ideas to help you make that pain a little bit less this year:
3 Ways To Lessen Sore Throat Pain
- Saltwater Gargle: A fast, easy and cheap way to take the pain in your throat down a notch, is a good saltwater gargle. Just take a teaspoon or 2 of salt and dissolve it in a cup of warm water and gargle. You can safely do this as needed through the day.
- Fluids: You must keep your fluids going when you are sick, even if you do not feel like it. You should drink water because it hydrates you and keeps your mucous membranes moist. This helps keep the bacteria to a minimum, which will help you get healthy more quickly.
- Medication: Two of the most effective medications you can take for sore throat pain are over the counter and are probably in your medicine cabinet. The first is acetaminophen and the other is Chloraseptic Sore Throat Spray. The acetaminophen will ease the swelling and the Chloraseptic will ease the pain considerably.
I remember my mom using Chloraseptic when I was younger and I have used it with my kids as well. We always have at least 2 bottles in our medicine cabinet at all times. I prefer the Warming Honey Lemon and the kids prefer the Cherry throat sprays. I love the brand because I know it has a pleasant flavor, the spray is safer than a lozenge, especially for younger kids and it works! You know when you have a sore throat and that pain is so bad, you can barely talk? This hilarious video from Chloraseptic, depicts this fantastically and it cracked the kids and I up!
I love how the video nails how gruff you can sound when you have a sore throat. I mean, you kind of do sound like a monster when you try and talk with sore throat pain, right?! In the video, the mom reverts back to her normal voice as soon as she uses the Chloraseptic spray. This is exactly how the spray works, with the results being immediately after use. The relief is instantaneous and the sprays are sugar, aspirin and alcohol free, which I appreciate.
