When i had my sore throat i had honey and tea. Also had honey, lemon ginger drinks. I took a fisherman friend as directed on pkg. And if u have a fever too, my dr said i can take normal strengh tylenol as directed on the box. I think its every 4-6hours cant remember. But always call ur dr before taking any of those. Thats what my dr recommend for me though. Not much else you really can do unless u have a natural store near you. My mom got me this very weak cough syrop made from pine tree or something. But like she said, its really weak so wont do much but its fine to take while pregnant.
My doctor said I could take Ricola cough drops. Just not many 2-3 a day
What really helped me was lemon and honey. I heated up water soaked half a lemon in it and sweatened with honey. Tastes good and did wonders. Hope you feel better soon.
