A throat spray/lozenge that contains BENZOCAINE should be the most effective - Cepacaine lozenges or Orochlor spray/gargle. Othewise try Strepsils INTENSIVE - The only throat lozenge that contains an anti-inflammatory for local action.

Also, take something to dry up that post-nasal drip as it may be worsening the sore throat. Something like SINUEND may an option.
