Cayenne pepper for sore a throat?

Since I don't have time to go to a doctor on Monday, I decided to go to the urgent care clinic today. I pay out of pocket for my health insurance, so there's no reason for me to suffer with any maladies that won't go away. The doc said my mysterious sore throat that won't go away is just something that is going around. She told me not to take anti-biotics unless it sticks around for more than 2 more weeks. I don't have that long. I have to be able to teach and I have to be able to do it over loud music. I need it gone now.

She didn't look at my toe but she says if I can walk on it, it's not broken. So I won't sweat it.

I looked up home cures for sore throat on Google and apparently the most successful one is cayenne pepper. The reviews say that if I gargle it with warm water for 3 days, it works better than anti-biotics. I'll be calling the PCC market tomorrow to see if they sell it in bulk.
