It is mainly triggered by the eating cool drinks and ice cream contaminated by bacteria Streptococcus. At times sore throat is accompanied with high fever if it happens so get in touch with the doctor. This is a fool-proof home remedy which I have been using for past 2 years to treat sore throat. It works the best when it is taken at the first symptom of the sore throat.
We use 5 ingredients in this sore throat home remedy, they are- Cinnamon stick, Fennel seeds, Mint leaves, Ginger and Cardamom. Cinnamon is a spice which is widely used in Indian cooking.
