Dehydration and a sore throat
As a result of dehydration, the swelling and inflammation gets worse, so it’s at times like this that it’s really important to take on more fluids than you otherwise might. The obvious drink of choice is simply water, but warm teas and soups are also good options and recommended in home remedies – it’s just essential to drink often.
It is also a good idea to avoid eating or drinking anything that will aggravate the feeling you have in your throat, so spicy foods aren’t recommended. These often enhance dehydration and the burning feeling will further irritate the discomfort.
