Ice cream is not a cure for sore throat

Doctors specialized in ear, nose, and throat diseases have declared that ice cream can be harmful when used to treat sore throats.

They pointed out that some believe that ice cream is able to relieve sore throats, and this is a common and incorrect myth. The reason is that on the one hand, cold causes blood vessels to spasm, and this can actually help reduce inflammation. On the other hand, the cold can cause damage that worsens the patient’s health condition.
