How can I treat this sore throat and how long will it last?!

Question: How can I treat this sore throat and how long will it last?
I've had a sore throat that started thursday night. On Friday I woke up with pain and it got better then got bad at night. Today being saturday it has hurt most of the day. I've tried gargling warm salt water, cepacol, tylenol, ibuprofen, ive been drinking water, had yogurt, jolly ranchers, and i have gotten tons of rest and i still feel horrible. I also feel weak , and lightheaded.. how can i treat this and how long does it last?


You should probably go to the doctor.
But try eating a teaspoon of honey.
Or drink some tea. And try the salt water again it helps heal the throat.
And how long it last depends.

What I do when i have a sore throat.

Try Sage tea. Take fresh sage leaves (1-2 teaspoonfuls) and place in a tea ball. Pour boiling water over them and allow to steep for 15 - 30 minutes. You can add lemon and honey to the tea if it tastes bitter. Drink it hot and it should help soothe the sore throat.
If you look at the back of your throat and there is white stuff on the tissue back there and it looks swollen, you may have strep throat and need to get to the doctor or emergency room.
