Several thoughts. One, it is possible to have seasonal asthma. Asthma that is triggered by a certain type of weather. For you that woud be colder weather. Two, discus other options with your doctor. Instead of asking for Advair, would he agree to you trying an inhaled corticosteroid alone and an albuterol inhaler, or even just the albuterol. He is probably concerned about you using a long acting bronchodialer.
One known side effect of lisinopril is a dry nagging cough, however, I'm not sure about the itchy throat. You may want to call your pharmacist and ask them - they're typically very knowledgeable about all side effects of meds.
I know the risk is too low but I have symptoms and dry cough and feverish feeling are the most important of them. Pleas, please answer my question without considering my risk, please.
Her doctor said nothing in her throat and to encourage fluids. I have tried Benedryl, Children's Cleratin, cough meds, even just simple honey with warm water. Nothing seems to keep those constant clearing of throat at ease. Doc says maybe she has formed a habit. which to some extent seems true as when I keep reminding her, she would stop for a few minutes. Has anyone had this and any suggestions?
I have this dry, itchy cough which started out with a lot of flem and mucous but is now mainly just a dry cough. It's also very itchy and irritating, feels like I have something stuck to the back of my throat. I had the same cough last year about the same time march/april. It lasted about a month and got so bad that there were occasions where I just couldn't stop coughing or even say a sentence without the need to cough. It also gets worse in the evening.
It starts out as an itch or tickle in the back of my throat and causes me to cough, sometimes in fits. during the day the coughing isn't as bad, it seems to worsen at night when I am trying to sleep. I do not have a cold so I'm very confused as to what this could be. I just want some advice as to what i can do to stop it, or even to as it could be. I have made a doctor appointment for Tuesday, but it would be nice to have some way to stop it in the mean time. Thank you for your time!!

Got bit badly by my dog and got cellulitis with fever and flu-like symptoms. The itching and dry cough started then, and has continued ever since. Was put on Augmentin for the infection, but didn't help the lungs. Have a clear chest xray and docs can't hear anything in my lungs. They are scratching their heads: am now on another antibiotic (just in case!), albuterol inhaler, antihistimine, cough suppressant, etc. -- nothing helps! Am really feeling depressed and uncomfortable--miserable.
Back in December I had a problem with my ears itching (I assumed they were just dry and used Mineral Oil to ease the itching). So back to the itchy throat -- it's been somewhat persistent but it comes and goes and is never horrible -- every now and then I have a slight cough or have to clear my throat. Some of my co-workers had similar problems and they suffer from allergies.

I keep reading that asthma comes with a DRY cough. Mine is productive. I'm taking Singulair, (daily) and Proventil (as needed) but I still wheeze on the inhale and I'm coughing up stuff. Is this a normal part of asthma or should I be looking for something else? Thanks so much for your comments.
Had an issue where I developed a horrid itch in my throat a tickle as you will. I caused me to cough and as went on the cough got worse to the point I felt like I was drowning. Now I also started having sinus issues where my nose would stuff up and drain. I had gone to the dr's they gave me a cortizone shot 1mg didn't help. I went to the allergy specialist and we did an asthma test (was fine) he put me on nose sprays just caused dry bloody nose. I went to a pulminary dr.
Hmm sounds like what I have it just started about two weeks ago my throat feels itchy and dry sometimes i cant catch my breath between coughs and all i spew up is clear mucous. I tried benidryl and some cough syrup but it doesnt work when i goto sleep. I only get about 4 hours of sleep before i wake up coughing and spewing up more clear mucous and i feel so exhausted the next day. Is there something floating in the air that we dont know about and maybe it only effects certain people?
I been coughing nonstop lately, At night my throat would get really itchy and then i only get about 6 hours of sleep. I just recently moved into a new house and after sleeping on my bed, my whole body is itchy as well. Do you guys think there might be molds or something?
I am now left with a scratchy throat and a constant dry cough. My vocal cords seem to be very irritated. I get worse if I talk a lot. Additionally, I can't eat certain types of food anymore, such as anything with a sweet icing such as a glazed donut or anything spicy. I don't normally eat sweet stuff, but I occasionally have dessert after a great meal. Those types of food will send me into a coughing fit.
Has anyone experienced persistent dry cough in pregnancy? This is my first pregnancy, and I've definitely been having a little bit of sinus issues - mostly at night and I can feel stuff dripping down my throat. Only stuffy occasionally and mostly at night. This was not common for me when I wasn't pregnant unless I had a cold. A few weeks back I also had a very itchy throat with a persistent dry cough. I thought I was just fighting something off.
Every night, literally a few minutes after I lay down to go to sleep, I develop this horrible itchy throat that always leads to coughing and gagging. This sensation will last for about ten to fifteen minutes, which i will spend coughing, drinking water, blowing my nose, and trying desperately not to throw up. Then it will fade to a more mild itch that I can sleep though. I will feel fine all day, and then, consistently, this cough will rise up as I'm about to go to sleep.
Around late January, I had an acute attack of itchy throat accompanied by a horrible non productive cough. Along with the cough I get a metallic taste of blood in the back of my throat. The attack can last for hours or until I break a allergy capsule in my mouth and swallow it without water, that and over regular antihistamines keep it down for a day or so, then I have another attack. I live in the south and at this month of March our pollen count is up around 5000...
So the last month I have been experiencing a very itchy throat while trying to sleep and it drives me crazy, every night I have to cough at least two times like I am trying to cough that otch out, Im worried that it isnt something serious, thanks in advance
I literally wake coughing and it feels as though my throat has closed over and is very itchy. I cough and cough and cough..... Well, I have been off all sugars as I am trying to loose weight and it has gone. yesterday I ate birthday cake and it was back. I am trying going off sugars (including honey, agarve etc) again, and then I will eat them again and see what happens. has anyone else noticed this?
But anyway, my mom has this irritation in her throat. She isnt trying to clear her throat when she coughs, its just very itchy. She tries not to cough, and this results in vomitting her food. Water and tea does seem to help, but it only delays the coughing, which continues later on the day. We've also noticed that she coughs a tremendous amount at night. I seriously have no clue what to tell her or what medication I just recommend.
i'm on veramyst and allerx. and i'm not stopped up at all, no sneezing, no itchy eyes and YET the throat tickle will not die and i don't think it is any better at all. if i do have any remaining post-nasal drip, it's hardly any at all. pollen counts have dropped a lot the past few days. i'm starting to go crazy.
