Sore throat

I am starting to get a small cold. So far its just burning eyes, I've been sneezing, my nose is runny & my throat is so sore. The sore throat pain is the worse. Since I cant call my Dr right now, what can i take for the soreness? I read that honey, lemon & water works but that sounds nasty right now & i dont want an upset stomach on of it. I read cough drops are ok but then that they are not. Any suggestions?

Are you sure its not just really bad allergies? Sometimes my allergies get bad during pregnancy. If it is, u can take claritin. If it is a cold, you can drink a different flavored tea besides lemon to soothe ur throat. Gargling with salt water, and taking tylenol may help a bit. Hope you feel better. Take care
