A sore throat is a common symptom myself and other general practitioners or ENT (ear, nose and throat) surgeons see in our patients. A sore throat may vary in severity from a mild discomfort in the throat that is always present, to pain on eating solids or consuming liquids. Most cases of sore throat are caused by viral and bacterial infections such as influenza and streptococcus, and usually heal without complications as long as they are tended to with the right treatment. At the first sign of a sore throat, many parents in Singapore turn to a multitude of home remedies to ease their throats. Some of these methods temporarily soothe a sore throat but very often only contain very low concentrations of active principle ingredients to treat the condition. I’ve seen many patients, young and old, come in with colds and flus as a result of coming into contact with a sick friend, colleague or family member.
As viral illnesses are the most common cause of a sore throat, it is not necessary to use antibiotics to treat them. Over-the-counter (OTC) medications such as BETADINE® Gargle can be used to prevent further escalation into a more significant infection. Overall, with the right behavioural changes and habits, parents can easily treat most sore throats and prevent them from becoming larger problems.

Many Singaporeans turn to home remedies based on perceptions and recipes passed down from one generation to another. Hence, I am a big advocate of treating a sore throat with a medically-proven solution, to prevent the escalation into something bigger and to minimize chances of community acquired illnesses. This means that parents do not need to make a trip to the doctor’s office every time their child starts describing signs of a sore throat. The Gargle contains an antiseptic called povidone-iodine which is effective at killing all three kinds of sore throat causing germs – viruses, bacteria and fungi.

These symptoms may be accompanied by coughing, sneezing, nasal congestion, fever and swollen lymph nodes. I have also come across other more esoteric remedies such as drinking Coca-Cola with salt, eating vanilla ice cream and gargling with turmeric to ease the discomfort of a sore throat.
This leaves the immune system vulnerable to further infection which could possibly develop into a serious condition.
