Nose, Throat and Mouth

Soothing minor sore throat pain - See your doctor if you are exposed to strep (bacterial throat infection that can make your throat feel sore and scratchy) or have any of these signs or symptoms: fever, nausea, vomiting, swollen neck glands, difficulty breathing or swallowing, tonsils with pus, or severe pain that doesn't improve in a few days.

  • Drink lots of liquids - Being well-hydrated helps keep mucus thin and easy to clear.
  • Gargle with warm salt water to soothe and help clear your throat of mucus.
  • Chew sugar-free gum - These products stimulate secretion of saliva, which bathes and cleanses your throat.
  • Rest your voice - If your sore throat involves an inflamed larynx, talking a lot may lead to more irritation of your voice.
  • Avoid air pollutants - Don't smoke. Avoid smoke-filled rooms and fumes from household cleaners or paint.
  • Battling bad breath - Occasional bad breath is usually due to bacteria, certain foods or a dry mouth. When bad breath doesn't respond to self-care, ask your dentist to check for gum disease or poor-fitting dental work or see your doctor for a possible medical cause.
  • To fight bad breath: Brush and floss after you eat
  • Brush your tongue including the back of your tongue, a good brushing removes dead cells, bacteria and food debris.
  • Chew sugar-free gum - The action stimulates flow of saliva to prevent dry mouth and to wash away food particles and bacteria.
  • Rinse your mouth with water
  • Don't smoke - Smoking dries out your mouth and causes its own unpleasant mouth odor.
  • Tartar control - Anti-tartar pastes can help prevent a buildup of tartar.
