Re: Sore Throat
Mar 8, 2004
Yes, post nasal drip down back of throat will cause the throat to become sore.
Sleeping with head elevated helps. I take 1 teaspoon plain Robitussin before bed with no drink after and this helps keep mucous thinned during the night. The pediatrician had me use this on the kids and I decided if it works for them it should work for me. I have been using plain Robitussin for years for this purpose.

To eliminate some of the drainage, use salt/soda water irrigation of sinuses. I mix 1/2 teaspoon plain salt, 1/2 teaspoon baking soda, 1 cup boiled water, strain thru coffee filter, put in clean nasal spray bottles, let COOL. Hang head off bed while lying on back, squirt few squirts saline solution into nostrils, massage cheek area, turn head from side to side slowly. This is an old time remedy that doctors are going back to these days.
