I noticed that flaw too, but i was going to be nice and not say anything!


Well your doing the right thing by drinking the hot fluids...

I would try Dispirin Direct...it's the melt in mouth form, found them very good for sore throats.

*Only take this if your not allergic to this medication and have taken Dispirin before!*

That normally works for me as well as dissolving a disprin on your tongue, tastes crap but it works.

I suffered from extreme sore throats beofre my tonseils were removed.

Theres a product you can buy over the counter in the chemister called Diaflam(or something like that).U can get it in spray form or mouth wash form.Mouth wash is better.It helps numb your throat and ggood thing is you can take it ever 90min-3hours.So if a sore throat is coming on you can take it.The spray form is real easy to carry round though

It is specially formulated to dissolve on the tongue with a pleasant taste which means you can carry it with you and take it whenever pain strikes

There is also a medicated mouthwash called Oraldene which tends to work really well. It has a numbing effect when you use it and I find that my sore throats never last longer than a day and a half if I use it.

It tastes absolutely manky though, so if you are getting it get the mint flavour.
