A saltwater gargle aids in the healing of infectious and swollen vocal cords and also helps heal sore throats. Take half a teaspoon of salt and stir it in a cup of warm water. Gargle as many times as possible during the course of the day. However do not attempt to use more than half a teaspoon of salt as the more salty the water the greater is the chance of further aggravation or irritation in the throat.

Thanks for the suggestions. I have been combating a sore throat for over a week now, and I am pretty desperate to find something that will help. I will try these suggestions and see what works for me. Thank you.

if you have had a sore throat for a week i think it is time to see a doctor. sore throats don't usually last that long unless there is a significant problem.

Of course this isn't instead of seeing a doctor, but I find gargling with tea tree oil very helpful. The antiseptic effect can practically stop an infection if you use it soon enough. I also use it instead of ready made mouthwash sometimes.
