Got a cold I think. Throat hurts so bad I actually have to spit all my saliva because I can't swallow.

What should I do? I have no medicine. I've been thinking of just drinking some hot water god damn it

Embrace it. If you get sick, then get sick. Look at it this way: you're getting some needed 'upgrades' to your immune system.
>>
well you need to swallow even though it hurts. and gargle salt water.

Have any honey? Take a spoonful every once in a while.

Boil some water in a pot, stand over it, and breathe in the steam.

If you have garlic cloves, sucking on them acts like a throat losenger. It's not tasty though.

Still drink lots of water even if it hurts. Dehydrating yourself will prolong the soreness.
>>
Ginger might work too, since you don't need to swallow. Just cut a little piece and sometimes chew it.
>>
Gurgle salt water or hot tea with honey

Also, if you have any nasal issues, you can make a makeshift netti-pot with a clean sports-top bottle of water. Put clean, lukewarm water with some salt in it. And use it like a netti-pot. Gently pushing the water in one nostril with an open mouth, and letting it run out the other side. Only do so once or twice a day.

I've been poor, sans-insurance with a horrid cold too. Do not starve yourself or stop drinking water. You need the nutrients and hydration to get better.

Should be taking zinc daily. 25-50 mg depending on your weight. Don't go overboard because zinc toxicity feels like death.
>>
Strep throat get some pennicillin
>>
Just buy some Riiiiiiiiiiiicolaaaaaaaaaaaa! It actually works, not kidding.

you might have mononucleosis or strep. I would look in the mirror to see if there are any white patches in the back of your throat, and if so, youll want to get it checked.
>>
>>16594310
Gargle some mouthwash twice a day to help nuke your tonsils.
>>
>>16594310
hot water works quite well, you could drink hot tea too.
>>
you might have strep. get some cough drops, take some ibuprofen, and see a doctor
>>

Get a light and look in the back of your mouth.

If you see white shit then you have strep throat and will be sick for weeks unless you get antibiotics.
