WAKING UP WITH A SORE THROAT?

Have you been waking up each morning and with your first swallow of the day, had that sinking feeling.  $%@#, am I getting sick?

In winter it is very common to wake up with a sore, dry or itchy throat.  This is your throat giving you a message.  But what is the message? The sore throat could be a sign of illness.  But the most likely cause is dryness in the air of your bedroom.

WHAT IS AN EASY WAY TO FIGURE OUT WHAT IS CAUSING YOUR DRY THROAT?

Have a drink of water or a warm beverage.

If your throat settles after a drink, and doesn’t return during the day, this means that your sore throat is unlikely to be a sign of illness. (Stop panicking)

HOWEVER, this is a sign that your bedroom is super-drying.  And when the air is drying the skin of your throat, it is also drying the skin of your face, and your hands, oh and all of you, really. (Start panicking, again). This is called Winter Skin. And there are steps you can take to manage this.
