You might want to try cleaning your teeth, rinsing your mouth and gargling to help reduce the amount of active bacteria in your throat after taking the VSL#3.

I'd also suggest washing it down with plenty of water.

I noticed when I first started taking VSL my throat would get itchy, now it doesn't happen anymore.
