I have a sore throat for the last few days and it is really annoying me. I am drinking warm water with honey all the time it still is not getting any better.
Last night, it was so bad that I couldn’t even drink water properly so AS suggested putting some whole pepper in my mouth. He asked me to leave it until it got soft and it would break apart by itself and chewing on small pieces helps the sore throat (it really does). As I had a few peppers in my mouth, we had the following conversation.
Me: “Babe what happens if I swallow the whole peeper by mistake?”
AS: “It will go inside your tummy”
I was asking what really would happen if I ate the whole pepper but in the midst of doing his things, it was the best answer he came up with. I couldn’t help but laugh.
Take care everyone,

This is an interesting remedy! If I remember, I shall have to try. And I love your hubby’s oh so practical response. I imagined him saying it with a kind smile. 🙂
Hubby tried this yesterday! While it didn’t last, he did get relief while he was sucking on the peppercorn. 🙂
Gald it worked 🙂
I have never heard to chewing on pepper as a cure for a sore throat before! I shall try this the next time I’m a little hoarse!
It does work 🙂
Ah that’s not good..hope you feel better soon..can I suggest a home remedy that I works for me (for cold & cough)..I had tried it because I couldn’t take any cold or cough medicine as I’m BF my baby..
Boil water for 10-15 minutes with cinnamon stick, ginger, honey and lemon and drink this hot concoction few times a day..it heals my cold in a day or two…May help with your sore throat as ginger is known relief for sore throat..
Thank you gal, I will try it.
Salt dissolved in warm water is effective for sore throat too. Gurgle.
I will try that gal, thanks.
