last night I was about to give myself an emergency tracheotomy bc I couldn't swallow (I've got strep, and yesterday, it was winning)... I went online to find a diagram, and instead I stumbled across a sore throat remedy that actually WORKED (I'm on an antibiotic, but to combat serious pain, I was spraying cephacol down my throat to no avail) -- mix equal parts honey and apple cider vinegar, then take spoonfuls til throat quits hurting. within about 5 minutes I felt almost human again... AND it worked for 8 whole hours, long enough for me to get the first decent night's sleep I've had all week.
anyone else got any secret cures or folk remedies?
