Eat Oranges When You Have A Sore Throat?
Hi doctor, I want to ask. Actually, when a sore throat may not consume various types of oranges such as lime, lemon etc. They say it can be used as a natural remedy but some say it also contains citric acid which can irritate the lining of the throat. That’s right, thank you.
