Throat infection

When the throat starts to hurt while swallowing water or food is when we realise a throat infection. At times a throat infection can be painless but a constant low fever is an indicator as well. Cold water, dust, non clean water otherwise, mere climate can be a reason to it. 

It is always advisable to have a physicians consultation for any problem but trying a few remedies at home can, at most of the times, cure the problem even before having to consult a doctor at all. 
For adults or children alike,
1.Gargle with very salted hot water 4 times a day.
2.Drink only hot water.
3. Try substituting with herbal tea to ordinary beverages. 

In case, you have severe throat pain it can take up to 2 days. 

Throat infections in babies can be detected by having a look at their throat from inside the mouth. The area where the mouth ends and the throat begins would be reddish pink in colour and at times would have white blisters indicating a throat infection.
Small children do not drink much hot tea and water as their mouth is quite sensitive to temperature. In such cases, provide them with a straw through which they can help the hot tea bypass their sensitive mouths directly to the throat. Doing this, you can see the difference in a matter of hours. But again make sure it is not hot enough to burn their mouth..
