Can drinking vinegar kill you?
ANSWER #6 of 11

To be honest cold water is prob what got you that sore throat & cough to begin with...
I personally drink tea with honey because it is a natural remedy guaranteed to help sooth the throat! Also I would try a cough suppressant like Ricola...swiss herb....made of all natural herbs from peppermint, lemon balm, linden flowers, horehound, elder, wild sage hyssop & a few others....it helps fight coughs naturally while also soothing the throat!
If you feel like this in 2 days I would begin a throat rinse...
gargle a glass of luke warm water & some salt...about 3 times a day for 2-3 days...it should be gone by then Avoid cold bev's stick with the good old fashion chicken soup & loads of water so you dont dehydrate.
if you are still feeling the same or there is no change what so ever I advise you to seek help from your doc.
