This worked great for me! Better than any lozenges or sprays I've tried! Thanks!
i tried everything .. sucking on a purple onion killed my throat pain right away Comments By: Nikki on 2009-10-01
Ginger helped also but only when it was in puree form with apple juice.. The next day I tried sucking on an onion and i was instantaneously cured.
