It is very scary to have a sore throat at a time like this! One of the rare symptoms of coronavirus infection is a sore throat with dry cough. However, not all sore throats mean that you have contracted the infection. There might be various reasons why your throat might be itchy- tonsillitis, common cold and many more. It is always better to try home remedies that are natural to keep sore throat at bay.


1.Ginger & honey wrap

Ginger with honey kills viruses and germs that spread infections. Ginger’s medicinal properties with honey’s anti-inflammatory nature can be both soothing to your throat as well as act as immunity boosters. The duo works as an expectorant and clears up sinuses, capable of cleaning mucus and irritants which are responsible for throat itch.

Materials required:

Honey, grated ginger, flour, olive oil, paper towel, tape and gauze.

·Mix honey and flour to make a consistent mixture.

·Add grated ginger and 3 drops of olive oil.

·Put it on a paper towel or napkin, place it on chest and tape it before going to bed.  

(Note: Apply it to small patch of skin and test before using if you have delicate skin.)


2. Salt water gargle

Salt water is helpful in soothing the itch as it reduces swelling and itching. However, assuming that salt water can kill the viruses is not advisable as there is no proper evidence on the same.

Add some salt to warm water. Gargle deep and spit out the solution. Repeat it for a couple of times in a day for 3-4 days. If the symptoms persist, it is better to consult a doctor.


3.Consume Mulethi or liquorice root

This herb has been of a great use in Ayurveda for viral infection treatment as it contains anti-viral properties. This root soothes the soreness or the itchiness in your throat. The healthy mucus produced by the herb eases out the pain along with harshness and is a great source of antioxidant that boosts immunity.

You can consume this by adding some fibers in your chai or with some honey.


4.Apple cider vinegar

ACV being the main ingredient in oxymels used to treat cough and cold contain alkaline, anti-inflammatory properties. It can kill harmful bacteria.

Take a glass of water, add a spoonful of ACV. You can also add honey to make it taste sweeter. Drink the solution to soften your sore throat.
