Keeping hydrated is especially important when one has an infection such as strep throat. This can be best done in several ways. First, there are certain things one should avoid drinking with strep throat, since the acid in them will only irritate already inflamed tissues: Citrus juices, such as orange juice, grapefruit juice , and lemon juice or lemonade should be avoided, as should tomato juice. Cool liquids, like water, are good against dehydration, while warm liquids, like tea with honey, warm cocoa, or broth-style soups can soothe the throat.

Another thing that is soothing to the throat is to gargle several times a day with warm water to which a tablespoon or two of salt has been added.

Since strep throat is highly contagious, the utensils and dishes used by someone with it should be cleaned carefully with hot, soapy water, and should, ideally, be kept separately from those used by the rest of the family.
