So my allergies have not been bad at all recently, but within the past few days I've developed a sore throat and ear ache from them. The past few days have been really hot which I think is making my allergy symptoms (which have been mild to non-existent this year) worse, and I also was testing out some aerosol based hair products this weekend which I'm sure didn't help.
Our wedding celebration is this weekend, and I'd really prefer to feel 100% on the day. If I take allergy medicine it makes me really drowsy at first and it never mixes well with alcohol (puts me right to sleep), so I don't want to start taking it just a few days before our wedding. I've honestly felt fine most of the year up until this point, so the timing is really unfortunate.
Does anyone have any advice/at home remedies for soothing a sore throat caused by allergies/environmental pollutants? I don't want to worry about drug side effects or whether or not I can drink at my wedding.
