Had one patient with persistent sore throat gargle with Align Probiotic with rapid improvement in pain – just used it once/day, Would be interested in anyone with similar response.
There have been trials of probiotic Streptococcus salivarius K12 use for prevention of strept and viral pharyngitis.

In a case of persistent sore throat I suggested gargle with Align – she would empty a capsule and gargle with it briefly once daily. Sore throat rapidily improved.
Comment – would like any others desperate for help there let me know if it helps.
Came across another sore throat treatment –
