When I have a sore throat I suck on one of these; they don't taste bad like others, and they deaden the soreness. I don't need anything else, and I've taken these for a few years when needed.
If you have a really bad sore throat these are the ones to buy. For me this deadens the soreness or numbs might be a better word. They come in a tin and not too expensive. You'll find them at a drug store.
