Frequently Asked Questions

A sore throat is usually a symptom of a virus such as a cold or the flu.

 

This is why many cold and flu treatments can also help to treat a sore throat.

 

Other conditions that can cause a sore throat include laryngitis, tonsilitis, glandular fever, as well as a condition known as strep throat which is a bacterial infection.

 

If you feel any of the following symptoms then you could be suffering from a sore throat:

 

  • Pain in the throat, especially when swallowing
  • A dry throat with a scratchy feel
  • Redness in the mouth
  • Bad breath (halitosis)
  • A weak cough
  • Swollen neck glands

 

Children can also get a high temperature and also be less active when suffering from a sore throat.

The best treatment for your sore throat depends on the cause and what kind of treatment works for you.

 

For example, some people prefer pain relief sprays or rinses that help to numb the back of their throat.

 

Others prefer lozenges with antiseptic properties that help to tackle the irritation in the area.

 

If you’re ever unsure which one would be the best choice for you, ask our pharmacists or your GP for their recommendations and they’ll help to get you on the right track.

When you take a lozenge, it will slowly start to shrink, releasing the products inside that will soothe your sore throat.

 

This can suppress a cough and moisten the irritated tissues of your throat.

 

Many lozenges include anaesthetic properties to numb the pain, or menthol which cools the throat.

Honey has natural antibacterial properties that can heal wounds, reduce inflammation and relieve pain.

 

If you're constantly coughing, this may aggravate your sore throat, but honey also works as a cough suppressant which will give the irritated throat tissue time to heal.

 

You can take honey with a spoon, or mix it into warm water or tea.
