Itchy throat persistent cough

Common Questions and Answers about Itchy throat persistent cough


Avatar m tn It's on and off! I've started having throat issues at times as well. At six weeks I went to my doc to check my cough and got the hiv ag/ab combo test. It came back negative. My doc gave me anti-biotics and nasonex. I finished my meds and I still have this cough! My doc wants me to take a pulmonary test now. My question is what is the chance that I contracted hiv and it just hasn't shown on the test? I am really nervous about this! My doc also said to start taking Omesec as well.

I also took throat tea and honey it seems help but I really need good sleep in the night, how do I get rid of this cough ?
Avatar f tn Hi, I recently moved to Florida and appear to be suffering from allergies. People have told me that the new area may be what's causing the problem. Last year I got sick twice and both times people were saying allergies could've been the culprit. This year (in early January) I started with an itchy throat. 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).
Avatar f tn My nose is very congested most of the time. I have a dry chocking cough. I cough a lot when I feel an inside drift to my throat. I have a bad case of sinusitis too I think. My nose hurts a lot when the weather is cold and the pain goes away when I drink hot water. I am taking Reactine 20mg and I spray Nasonex in my nose. I also rinse my nose with NeilMed sinus rinse (saline solution). The sinus rinse helps a lot. I do it twice a day.
392548 tn?1216614379 i take albuturol (i cant sp it) and it usually goes away... well lately i have been waking up with a mild cough and almost like an itchy feeling inside my chest (it feels like its on my lungs) about once a month. it doesnt go away unless i take a couple puffs of my inhaler...but when i do it will go away in about 10 minutes...
Avatar m tn All are normal but have bilateral maxillary polyp...Is there any relation with persistent cough in throat and polyp...
Avatar f tn The dr has changed my diagnosis everytime I go (which is frequent). The cough starts with a tickle in my throat, which makes me cough this loud obnoxious cough that feels and sounds "dry" but produces this sometimes thin, sometimes thick white/clear mucus. This happens all the time, day night whatever. The dr has changed my Bp medicine twice, both times waiting 3+ weeks, then it was antibiotics, then asthma, then allergies, then musenex and chest xrays, bloodwork and others...
211043 tn?1337054301 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. I've had a humidifier going in my room ever since, and now it is definitely back. I don't feel sick otherwise. I was just wondering if anyone else experienced this or possibly the onset of allergies during pregnancy?
Avatar f tn Says I should get it I Opt'd out of the flu vaccine but for some reason she is real persistent about the whooping cough vaccination. Has anyone hear had it if so did you have any side effects? Ladies what are your thoughts on vaccines while pregnant?
Avatar n tn Help!!! i have been experiencing itchy throat, watery left eye, headache and sneezing since 2007. It has been going on and off eversince then and seemed to eased off with the use of Levocethirizine 10mg. The problem now is that this symptoms has been persistent and very embarassing and troublesome. I have used Levocetirizine and Piriton but with no change this time. It has now gotten to the point where I have nusea everyday and have to vomitt everyday before i feel any kind of relief.

Avatar n tn I've had an itchy cough for just over two weeks now, which has been steadily getting worse. It started at around midday with a bout of intense itchiness in my throat that made me cough to the point of retching. After a few minutes, the feeling dissappeared. However, that night my throat got slightly itchy again and the feeling has been getting stronger ever since. I now have a sore throat and a slightly inflamed right tonsil as well as the itch.
288415 tn?1231634102 I sense relief then the symptoms return. Most days I can hear but am constantly aware that my ears are itchy. The challenge is to not itch. If I itch, I usually get flaky stuff that I literally can lift off my inner ear.If I itch too much it becomes wet and begins draining a wet clear fluid. Then at night, whatever side I lay on clogs shut. In the morning there is thick crusty crud that again I try not to pick at. Im obviously in continual circle of symptoms here.
Avatar m tn It began in 1976 and re occurs every 5 to 6 years. I get a sore throat (not tonsils but when you swallow) I now go straight on antibiotics and use Bricanyl inhaler although it doesnt seem to have much effect except to cause alot of mucus coughed up from the lungs. It causes me to have spasm coughing and if I cannot control this to 3 or 4 coughs my windpipe closes over making it hard to breath in or out.
Avatar n tn We then took him to pedatrics and he has put it down to a compulsive disorder. He complains of an itchy throat, sinsus coming down his throat, and fizzing in his throat when he has a drink of water. He also has had periods of night terrors over the last 4 years following the operation. We are worried, frustrated and confused on how we can now help our son. He is getting tired of having this and it is wearing him out emotionally and physically. Where can we go now.
Avatar f tn Very severe cough, incontinence due to severe cough, feeling like I was choking on mucus or a dry throat, not able to sleep for more than 2 hours at a time for almost a month, passing out from coughing, gagging from the cough, cracked rib. Not to mention the severe deconditioning of my body which has taken almost 2.5 years to regain. The thing that helped the most while I was sick was using straight lidocaine in my nebulizer.
Avatar n tn I have the same situation. It started a little while after I gave birth. It is only an itchy inner labia. No other side affects. I was tested for a yeast and bacteria infections. My ob-gyn has no clue (I went to 2). It comes and goes and is itchy!! I can not figure this out!!!
Avatar f tn I still have an occasional sore throat~a few days ago I was sucking cough drops all day at work and that helped. This last week I felt very tired and went to bed 2 or 3 hours early for about 4 nights in a row. I don't know if it's because I'm ill or because my work schedule changed and I'm adjusting. I have an appointment with a local dermatologist tomorrow morning, but I would still welcome any ideas, to compare.
Avatar n tn here i for the last 6 months i have had itchy eye doctor told me it was due to mild allergies and prescribed eye drops which didnt help in the least so i turned to over the counter allergy medicine which hasn't helped either (so i dont think it's allergies) and in the last 3 weeks not only are my eyelids itchy but when i wake up in the morning my upper eye lids are bright red and swelled up so bad that its embarassing!!!!
Avatar m tn For the first day i just had a sore itchy throat. Then for two days I felt horrible. I could barely breath, coughed and wheezed very hard. I felt all around crummy and slept a lot. I started being able to breath better and cough less. I didnt feel as badly, either. The problem is that it's been about 5 days since i thought i was getting better. Is getting over a cold generally last longer than the cold itself? I feel half as bad as i did for those two days, but I am still sick.
Avatar n tn here i m arrenging my symtoms step by step. Day 1 : All of sudden, while watching TV, i felt stuffy/itchy nose and by natural instinct i came to know dat i gona have common cold in comming days.
Avatar n tn I took dayquil mucus relief last night and I sometimes cough dry but most of the time I cough up mucus and then sometimes but not usually I cough up mucus with little mixture of blood. Last night my throat felt really itchy and I couldn't stop coughing, this morning it doesn't feel itchy but I've been coughing every now and than, also I blow my nose frequently to get out the congestion and mucus. I don't think I have gotten any sores or anything like that.

Avatar dr m tn Even microscopic amounts will cause irritation to your delicate voice box, giving you a scratchy throat, cough or hoarseness. This is why these symptoms are most obvious when you first wake up in the morning. It’s also been shown that these same stomach juices can then travel down into the lungs or up into the ears of the sinuses. Pepsin, a digestive enzyme, and H. pylori, a common stomach bacteria, have been found in lung and sinus washings.
Avatar m tn After the incident i was quite worried and anxiety full of my life. During the incident i'm having tonsil and one week later i have develop mild itchy throat and cough persistent until now. I did not cough while sleeping and cough only day time. I think i might have full of stress / anxiety toward the STD mostly HIV. Recently i did have eye infection and google through i found that might be eye herpes/cymydia/genorr. I was so worried. I did have cold sore on my penis 1-3 week of the exposure.
Avatar n tn I also have a headaches, sinus congestion, sneezing, and a persistent cough. This has been going on for about 2 months. Blood tests come back negative. I am in a house that flooded. Could this be associated to mold?

Avatar n tn A visit to the hospital was pointless - the Health Care worker said don't worry I would breath eventually - did not look in my throat but took a chest x-ray that was clear told me to get cough syrup. I have been unable to prevent the coughing but now find that if after a cough I either deliberately wait before breathing in the symtoms of a blockage are less severe and I can slowly draw breath - a similar situation exists if I conceentrate on breathing through nose instead of mouth.
Avatar n tn non stop: cough till no strength,throat itchy,clear sticky phlegm. PLS IF ANYBODY know anything abt this symptoms and know how we can reduce her cough ill be very thankful! sorry my english not good enough. GOD BLESS EVERYONE!!!
