Hit me. I'm fucking dying here.
Drink in the morning and evening (or as per instructions). And then load up on Strepsils for when you're out and about. Try to keep your throat and neck warm. Avoid spicy/salty food. Don't drink alcohol. Keep drinking lots of regular fluids.
It won't help directly, but you'll feel that little bit better overall.
And then you'll get the post-wank malaise and question your very existence.
Vicks Ultrachoraseptic is it? Squirt it straight at the back of your throat, numbs it dead. Fuck strepsils, they are shit. I keep going back to them as the advert makes it look like it will coat your parched throat in a soothing juicy balm, but it really doesn't. They should be forced to take that advert down.
...not especially pleasant but damn effective.
My advice below is more sensible than this!
Only effective remedy for a sore throat I know about!
In the locker room (and I think one of them is a nurse) swear by something called "Cieman", I think. Ask at the counter in Boots.
If the cause is infection, then gargle with saltwater (TCp also good), avoid dairy, take manuka honey to sooth and fight infectoin.
If it's viral, you can only treat the symptoms and hope that your immune system beats the virus (and that you don't get a secondary infection.)
A whisky mac cures just about everything. After about 6 of them, you don't care so much anyway.
