    hope you are getting better… sore throat is not a lot of fun its just uncomfortable and difficult to swallow. usually, i would take the Nim Jiom Cough Syrup (www.geocities.jp/ninjiom_hong_kong/index_e.htm ) which has a thick consistency formulation. it coats the throat and includes herbs that are particularly good for that application.i hope it works on you as well.
