Remedy for sore throat during pregnancy

Mommies and mommies to be, what do you generally take to soothe a sore throat? I woke up with a bad sore throat this morning.. Does seeing a GP help?

You can try natural things like honey lemon or gargling with salt water :) But if you think you need to take medication, please visit a GP and tell the GP that you need pregnancy safe medication as there are many that aren't pregnancy-friendly :(

Oh dear :( If you have phlegm, there's a method called AGO remedy that mummies use for their toddlers when they have cough and flu - it's just one red apple, 3-4 cloves of garlic and 1 onion! Chop them all up and steam them for 30-40 minutes, then just drink the juice that comes out (I usually add 1/3 cup of water inside too) :) You can try it out too, should be fine for pregnancy too!
