    I usually take an aggressive approach. First I drink a hot cup of Ginger Tea. You can make it more effective by adding honey to it as both the ginger and honey help to fight the sore throat. The next thing I do is take teaspoons of concentrated unsweetened lime juice mixed with salt. This helps a lot because the salt helps relieve the itchiness of the throat and the lime juice is pure vitamin C.

    That is another thing - I take a double dose of Vitamin C. So that means 1,000 mg in the morning and 1,000 mg at night. And finally I get Strepsils or any other lozenge because they really help to numb the throat and make be feel slightly more comfortable when I swallow.

    Get better soon!

    You can buy over the counter throat sprays is the easiest way, lasts forever and I carry one with me always because even thirst when in the car without a drink can cause dehydration turning to dry itch. If you opt for a honey hot water lemon drink at home I would add a drop or two (maybe little less than 1/2 teaspoon) olive or canola oil. That will coat the throat really well and make sure it is not a very hot drink which irritate the throat worse.

    Gargle it with salt water. Lay off sweetened food and drinks. No Tabasco and too oily food. Get antibiotic if you must.

    I use zinc lozenges, if it comes on suddenly. Usually means it's an infection. By it being itchy, it would imply that it's more of an allergy, not infection. I gargle with thyme, because it has anti-inflammatory properties, then try to figure out the source of the problem. For example, I ate yogurt, with aspartame in it. My throat became very itchy, as well as sore. My tongue became thick, not long after. So, I took benedryl, because I knew, at that point,  it was an allergic reaction. Needless to say I stay away from aspartame.

    A quick and easy solution is to take a few black pepper corns and salt crystals and keep them in the mouth. You have to slightly bite on the pepper to release the spicy taste. This will soothe the throat, especially if you have a fit of coughing. I have tried it several times and found it helpful.

    I get excellent results from Hall's honey-lemon cough drops. I just keep using them. Sometimes its takes 4 or 5 of them but they usually do the trick. If it's getting bad I start taking vitamin C and echinacea.

    It sounds weird but I heard that scratching your ear can sometimes help
