What do you do when you get a sore throat? Stay in bed and maybe take some medicine? Have you tried putting a frog in your throat? No? How about putting on a necklace of live earthworms? You don’t want to? Maybe a dirty sock around your neck will help. You don’t think that will help? Why not? All of these things were seen as perfectly legitimate ‘cures’ for sore throats at some point in history.
