Home Remedies

There are several effective home remedies for throat infection which are easy and safe to practice at home. Some of the common home remedies are:

1. One of the simplest home remedies for throat infection is the use of salt water. All you need to do is take a glass filled with lukewarm water and then put little salt to it. Mix it properly and then use it as a gargle till it gets finished. This will give relief to your throat.

2. Using honey and lemon is also considered to be one of the effective home remedies for throat infection. Take a fresh lemon and cut it into several pieces. Now put these pieces in a cup of hot water and spoonful of honey. Wait until it cools down and then drink this mixture. The honey present in this mixture will coat the throat and temporarily reduce the pain.

3. You can even try to increase the moisture content you breathe by using a room humidifier. This will prevent your mucus membranes from getting dry and will make it easier for you to have a sound sleep. Another effective way is to breathe the steam of warm water several times daily which will soothe your throat.
