Sore tonsils otc remedies?

I am afraid I cannot understand your query. I guess you are referring to tonsils that become painful due to a sore throat. A sore throat is caused by an infection of some kind, which irritates the lining of the throat and makes it painful for you to swallow. You should consult your doctor if your infection persists or if the tonsils continue to hurt.

You should switch to drinking warm water instead of cold water. Other cold drinks should be avoided too. So should buttermilk, yogurt and ice creams. Instead you should not only sip warm water but also use it to gargle. A pinch of salt or of turmeric in the warm water will make your gargle antiseptic. You should drink warm drinks like tea, coffee or soup. A cup of hot milk will soothe your throat too. Add a pinch of turmeric to your cup of bedtime milk and drink this. Avoiding oily fried and rich food will help too. Eat a couple of cloves of garlic with your food. Ginger is an effective remedy against sore throat. You can boil tiny pieces of ginger in a cup of water and make a decoction with some honey stirred into it.
