Try some Throat Coat tea.

Or this concotion that one of my friends used to use when he sang opera: 2 Tablespoons each boiling water, lemon juice, white vinegar and honey. Sip it slowly and repeat as needed.

rest your voice (and use a very soft voice when you NEED to speak) b/c your vocal chords are swollen and irritated and you can damage them more! Drink lots of water (especially if you feel the need to clear your throat, drink water  each time instead),no caffeine or alcohol, and if you have a humidifier in your home, use it! Hope that helps!

Throat Coat, cough drops (but not the numbing kind like Halls) gargle with warm salt water.

The only true cure is vocal rest. Try not to even whisper…that actually really puts a strain on your voice.

I should clarify… by soft easy voice I DO NOT mean whispering.

DON’T TALK! drink tons and tons of water-I would skip the honey in your tea because it feels good if your throat hurts but it actually makes your vocal cords gooey which is not what you want. I know a lot of singers use honey but it doesn’t really do anything-and lemon is acidic so I don’t know why people use lemon either. Whispering IS bad for you voice so don’t whisper-write everything down today and tomorrow.waterwaterwaterwater!

Take a vow of silence today and rest up and gargle with salt water, as salty as you can stand.  It really does help.
