Sore Throat Remedies: What medicine or mouthwash would you recommend for a wound inflicted by a fish bone inside ones throat?

Any wounds that are internal like the one you have just described usually take care of themselves. You really do not have to take too much trouble or even do anything to cure them. Our saliva contains certain substances that usually manage to heal small scrapes and wounds without us even trying. This is the reason why when you have suffered a small scratch or scrape on your finger; even doctors suggest that you suck on the wound. This will stop the flow of blood at once due to the pressure applied to the wound by the act of sucking. It will also impart saliva, which is anti septic in nature and will enable your wound to heal dramatically. This is one of the reasons that you should leave the wound caused inside your throat by a fishbone alone. This is probably the best thing you can do for it. If this wound has been bothering you for more than a week, then it is better that you show it to a doctor. Since you cannot see the wound yourself, you have no way of knowing how deep or bad it actually is. Perhaps a medical examination can tell you this.

In any case, if the wound has been around for that long, there are some simple measures you can take to get rid of it. One of the best measures to take care of anything that is bothering your throat is to drink hot milk to which turmeric powder has been added. This will provide relief from the irritation. Milk has a tendency to coat your throat, thus preventing most other things from bothering it. The turmeric powder will help to heal the wound as well. Turmeric has healing powers and is also anti septic in nature. So it will even contribute towards arresting the growth of your wound. For better results, you can also add a tablespoon of clarified butter to your milk. This does not really have a very pleasant taste, but the clarified butter has some really superior healing properties. This remedy should help you considerably. You can also have a tablespoon of honey to help with healing your throat. Just put the honey in your mouth and allow it to slide down your throat slowly. Try not to swallow it. This will also coat your throat and prevent further damage from swallowing. It will also help to heal your throat.
