2131426 tn?1361423243 I have an itchy <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>throat</span> with dry <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>cough</span>. my voice is affected . I melted lozenges for my throat and gargled with warm salt water , still it's uncomfortable. What natural remedy can I relieve myself of this itchy throat, dry cough with a low unusual sound of my voice? Thanks.
Avatar m tn 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.
Avatar f tn One known side effect of lisinopril is a dry nagging <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>cough</span>, however, I'm not sure about the itchy <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>throat</span>. You may want to call your pharmacist and ask them - they're typically very knowledgeable about all side effects of meds.
5696127 tn?1381089797 I know the risk is too low but I have symptoms <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> dry <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>cough</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> feverish feeling are the most important of them. Pleas, please answer my question without considering my risk, please.
Avatar f tn Her doctor said nothing in her <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>throat</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> to encourage fluids. I have tried Benedryl, Children's Cleratin, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>cough</span> 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?
1397766 tn?1283098109 It starts out as an itch or tickle in the back of my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>throat</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> causes me to <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>cough</span>, 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!!
Avatar n tn I have this dry, itchy <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>cough</span> which started out with a lot of flem <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> 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.

Avatar f tn my cough wakes me up at night and makes my eyes itch <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> eyes watery. I have to grab my own <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>throat</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> choke myself so that I can <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>cough</span> hard enough to make it go away. This happens to me about 7-10 times a day and it's so annoying. I feel like I'm about to die and I lose my breath. I haven't been to a doctor yet I don't like going to doctors :( Someone please help!

392548 tn?1216614379 Got bit badly by my dog and got cellulitis with fever <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> flu-like symptoms. the itching <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> dry <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>cough</span> started then, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> 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.
Avatar f tn Back in December I had a problem with my ears itching (I assumed they were just dry <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> used Mineral Oil to ease the itching). So back to the itchy <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>throat</span> -- 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.

Avatar n tn I keep reading that asthma comes with a DRY <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>cough</span>. Mine is productive. I'm taking Singulair, (daily) <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> 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.
Avatar f tn So for the past week now I have had the whole itchy <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>throat</span> thing. Normally is will last a morning every few months or so and not the severe, but not this time. This time I also have a cold with it. the cold isn't co getting me at all but is giving me a raspy voice. I have a really dry burning kind of cough. the reason why I cough so much though is because of the itching. It had gotten so bad that I will have coughing fits for up to 5 minutes straight.
Avatar f tn Had an issue where I developed a horrid itch in my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>throat</span> a tickle as you will. I caused me to <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>cough</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> as went on the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>cough</span> 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.
Avatar n tn Hmm sounds like what I have it just started about two weeks ago my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>throat</span> feels itchy <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> dry sometimes i cant catch my breath between coughs <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> 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?
Avatar n tn I been coughing nonstop lately, At night my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>throat</span> would get really itchy <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> 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?
Avatar n tn I am now left with a scratchy <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>throat</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> a constant dry <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>cough</span>. 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.
211043 tn?1337054301 Has anyone experienced persistent dry <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>cough</span> in pregnancy? This is my first pregnancy, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> 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.
Avatar n tn Every night, literally a few minutes after I lay down to go to sleep, I develop this horrible itchy <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>throat</span> that always leads to coughing <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> 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.
Avatar m tn Around late January, I had an acute attack of itchy <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>throat</span> accompanied by a horrible non productive <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>cough</span>. Along with the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>cough</span> 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...
Avatar f tn So the last month I have been experiencing a very itchy <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>throat</span> while trying to sleep <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span> 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
