I'm having Silent day. Not spoken since I woke up this morning until this moment. Well if you think I'm on strike or something, you wrong. Actually, I really want to talk, but unfortunately my throat hurt. Uuuugh...yeap, hurt. So it becomes Silent day for me.
It makes me wondering, what sore throat is, because some people, including me, always connect it with the unstable weather and body condition. But that's it, I want to know more. Well..after searching hard everywhere (hehehe), Sore throat is the first sign of infection upper respiratory tract (colds, flu, tonsillitis). It is also a symptom of strep throat, which occurred due to failure of lymph nodes against bacteria or viruses. High-carbohydrate foods such as cakes, biscuits, and sugar intake combined with a low key micronutrients can lead to the occurrence of sore throat. Sore throat is usually worse by the fatigue, stress, smoking, and excessive alcohol consumption ( thanks God, I'm not into smoking and alcohol consumption). Throat disorders, acute or chronic, common in Indonesia, especially before the rainy season, when the virus and more allergic factors appear, so that cases are accompanied by sore throat as well as more colds. Especially during the rainy season, decreased immune system due to allergies. If not caused by a dangerous bacteria infection, sore throat can usually be cured by itself, without drugs.
To ease it, there are a few tips as follows:
* Get plenty of rest
* Eat sucking tablets (lozenges). These tablets are beneficial for reducing symptoms of inflammation and sore throats because it contains antiseptic, which is a substance that can kill or stop the growth of germs, especially in the mucous membrane mouth and throat.
* Drink plenty of water or fruit juice. Drink at least 8 glasses of water per day to keep your throat is not dry.
* Gargling warm salt water or mouthwash to reduce the pain. To make a salt water solution, mix 1 / 4 teaspoon salt in 1 / 2 cup warm water.

That's all guys. I hope these tips can help you, who have the same throat problems as mine. Now, I just need to do these tips and see the result. For you all, dont forget to take vitamin (especially vitamin C) and drink lots of water on this unstable weather, stay health guys! :)
