    I know people like to drink hot drinks when they have a sore throat, but really you may be making it more sore, as its swollen already so adding heat will irritate it. Drink plenty of cold water and juice, stay away from the paracetamol, as even though this lowers your temp, it draws out the healing process as your temp needs to remain raised to fight the infection (unless its sky high). Rest, drink water and eat plenty vitamin c :) hope you feel a little better! x

    I had this the week before Christmas, accompanied by a terrible cough, but thankfully it only lasted 2 days. Plenty of rest and ice water chased it :) x
