Try it when: The pain persists all day.

How it works: Herbal varieties may contain an immune booster, such as goldenseal root or echinacea; licorice, which is antiviral and antibacterial; or marshmallow herb, which helps produce the protective mucous in your throat. Try YogiTea Throat Comfort ($5 for 16 bags,yogitea.com), which contains licorice. Sip as often as you like.

Good to know: The above herbs can also be taken as tinctures, which are distilled liquids you place under the tongue.
