Catarrhal sore throat.
Herbal tea for gargling with catarrhal sore throat.
The causes of catarrhal sore throat are pathogenic bacteria that affect the mucous membrane when local immunity is weakened (due to overwork, malnutrition, hypothermia) and cannot resist their activity.
Symptoms of the disease appear suddenly: sore throat, perspiration, redness and swelling (but no purulent plaque).
To get rid of these unpleasant sensations, try gargling with a decoction of plant materials — sage, oak bark and St. John’s wort. They act as antiseptics — they kill bacteria and prevent the spread of infection — and reduce inflammation.
In addition, sage and oak bark are also natural anesthetics. Tannins in their composition have an astringent effect: inflamed tissues become denser, blood vessels narrow, swelling and pain decrease.
Sage leaves — 1 tbsp l.
