I think that buying strepsils is a complete waste of money, in fact buying any throat lozenges is a waste of money. I am a firm believer in following my grandma`s cures and whenever i had a saw throat as a lad she would get me to gargle warm salted water. It was hard when i was little because i always tended to swallow some but i do`nt have that problem now. All my children have used it and still do. yes it stings for a few minutes but then comes relief which lasts for a couple of hours. It does not seem to work for everybody but it works for me and mine. I would not however allow very young children to use this method because, as i know from experience, if swallowed it will induce a thirst.
