KK- Slow Morning May Turn Into A Slow Day and Evening Too

Sorry for the late start today but woke up with one of those sore throats that cause you to cringe every time you try to swallow.

Trying some home remedies but so far, nothing is working.

Try making a tea out of black currant jam.  The real stuff, not the simulated flavours.  Worked on my strep throat when nothing else had an effect.

This remedy is a bit exotic but scientifically proven… Manuka Honey the UMF 16+ strength.

Derived from Tea Tree pollen in New Zealand, Manuka Honey is a proven anti-bacterial agent and even skin salve to treat burns, minor wounds.  It also is being used as an anti-inflammatory for the esophagus in chemotherapy patients.  This last use may particularly apply to your condition.

Call your Doctor. The bad sore throat is usually strep. Since you have some medical thingys going on anyway, do NOT mess with it.

Get well, Paul. You’re our only hope. wink

Hot White Peony Tea and honey works for me, but VooX’s remedy has me intrigued.
