Ugg-it's that time of year when just about everyone I know is complaining of a sore throat. What do you do for a sore throat? For me it's lozenges or popsicles. Any other ideas?

I like to sip hot water with a little bit of lemon and honey.

It depends on why my throat is sore. If it feels like sinuses, I use one of the saline nose flusher-outers LOL

Then I swear by hot water, lemon and freshly grated ginger, or gargling with salt water.
