Avatar n tn I have a itchy throat for about a week which causes me to cough alot.I thought it was allergies, but the medicine I purchased at the store doesn't seem to help.The coughing gets worse at night when I lay down to sleep.It is getting to where I only sleep a couple hours a night because the itching of my throat won't stop and that when the coughing gets worse too.I do sleep with a fan on,would that make it worse?I would appreciate any help or comments.
Avatar m tn The cold is over in a week and after that I have an itchy inside my throat which causes me to cough a lot. When I am coughing, it is coming out a clear, salty liquid. I am not sure it is mucus because when I have a thick, yellow mucus, I don’t have an itchy and coughing problem. I go to see doctor and he gives me antibiotic for upper body for 7 days and it is gone. However, it is not a good idea to take antibiotic.
Avatar f tn I have been having a cough since 2001 which starts out as an itch or tickle in the back of my throat and causes me to cough uncontrollably, most of the times in fits. I cough throughout the day and night, even when I am asleep, I have disturbed sleeping due to the cough. Plus, I have seen my doctor, and the diagnosis is severe allergies, brought on by chalk dust. I have been prescribed medicines, but nothing seems to work.
Avatar n tn I have had a itchy throat and a annoying little cough ( the itchy throat causes me to cough) for about a week now. what could this be??? allergies??
Avatar n tn I have an itchy sore throat and a cough that seems to get worse during the night. It also seems to worsen while lying down. My right eye get's a really funny feeling and it also feels a little watery when I cough some times. And I also get a strange itchy feeling on the right side of the side of my tongue sort of where my throat begins and tongue ends. Could this be allergies? I've never had them before but this has been and issu for about a week.
Avatar f tn My main concern is that even though I feel good right now for example all of a sudden I get this uncomfortable itchiness in my throat and causes me to start coughing. Sometimes it's so bad it causes me to throw there any diagnosis for this? Everything I go to the doctor they give me antibiotics and cough medicine but unfortunately that's not the solution. Help?
Avatar f tn 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. Twice now I have thrown up from coughing so hard, and every time I have an attack my eyes water excessively and my nose starts to run.
Avatar n tn FIRST, I am on with my life then I start to feel a mild oncoming tickly itch sensation in my throat ( sometimes on one side the the other side or both sides) , it starts to get a stronger ITCH, I eyes start to tear and water and run down my cheeks, Then THAT CRAZY COUGH COMES. It causes my throat to hurt and get scratchy. HELP, I FEEL LIKE WRINGING MY OWN NECK and it is driving me and everyone else crazy. OH, and NO ANTI BIOTICS, allergy, nor cold medicines work. HELP.
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.
Avatar m tn This can be associated with postnasal drip and throat clearing. This can in turn irritate the throat lining. If infection is suspected, you need to send the sputum or throat swab for culture, microscopy, staining to rule out the pathogen and should also take chest radiograph. Antibiotic sensitivity of culture will decide the effective drug.
Avatar n tn He told me that I have cough syncope but did not give me any med because he said when the cough stops so will the Blackouts. I suppose this is true Number 2 I had no voice from coughing that was the worst because my throat felt like there was a worm in it and that was making me feel like was having an anxiety attack. Things were happening to me that I never believed happen to people. So next I talk to buddy at worked he had the same cold but with out the pasing out.
Avatar f tn I went back to have a follow up check-up and complained that the itchy throat still comes back especially every time I feel the air is too humid and get sweaty. I was prescribed with anti-leukotriene plus anti-histamine good for ten days but still after the medication treatment my throat still got itchy. I was wondering if this is really allergy or something else? and what are other good ways to treat an itchy throat?
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.
Avatar m tn For the past at least 10 years I have had constant congestion, almost always on the right side. This congestion causes PND and forces me to clear my throat and cough.(I blow my nose a lot to clear it) The mucus is always clear. The congestion on the right side is year round. Sometimes the cough turns into a dry heave and sometimes I vomit. The biggest problem is that after strenuous exercise the cough is very bad and leads to the dry heaving.
Avatar f tn Otherwise in the long term it can create thrush, a yeast infection in throat that can irritate our throat, and make us cough too. All the best. Hope you all feel better soon.
Avatar n tn Hi. I am a 22yo F. Long history of sinus infections/allergies. Over the past couple years, however, my symptoms have worsened and expanded. I really want to know what is causing them (for peace of mind) and of course, how to ease them. I have a constant post nasal drip, which causes me to clear my throat quite often - esp. after meals. Sometimes I subconsciously start making this clicking sound with my tongue to sort of "scratch" my itchy throat.
Avatar n tn She complains of itchy eyes, and is almost always having a runny nose and sometimes stuffy nose. Her cough is usually productive and she is always clearing her throat. Her symptoms seem to get worse when she gets excited or is physical. The doctor's are treating her for cough variant asthma, but are not sure why it is not coming under control. When she is coughing badly, we give her albuterol generously and that seems to reduce the intensity of the spell after a while.
Avatar m tn I've had GERD, post nasal drip, asthma and allergies all ELIMINATED as causes of my chronic cough. Codein is the only drug that helps - but codein is not a drug that one wants to use indefinitely. I've been coughing (dry tickle cough) for 12 years. They can put a man on the moon but they can't find a cure for this incredibly annoying and embarrassing condition.
Avatar n tn Symptoms getting worse with chronic cough (initially from dry cough to now productive cough), with increasing blood seen with the cough. it's occurring daily and blood seems to rush up from my airway to the throat, my chest feels pain and tight with SOB. I had CT chest done a year ago. At that time, i have cough with little sputum and occasional chest pressure/discomfort and SOB, and little blood streak coughed up. But now all symptoms are worsening. 1.Should I get another scan?
Avatar m tn Only problem I am having is a nagging cough that won't go away. I have read that Riba with interferon causes a cough but I don't about Riba and Sovali. Anyone else have any experience with the Riba cough?
Avatar f tn But it has other associated signs and symptoms such as cough, runny nose, inflamed eyes, sore throat, fever and a red, blotchy skin rash. Hives or urticaria causes red and sometimes itchy rash on the body such as face, neck, trunk, arms, and legs and perhaps anywhere on the body. They are usually allergic (food, medication and insect stings) but may also be due to infections and stress. Many a times no specific cause for them is ever found.
Avatar n tn Finally, I had to go to urgent care after severe episodes of the tickle in the throat, followed by a hacking cough that left me gasping for air and choking, sometimes vomitting if had food on my stomach. After these episodes I have to belch several times to release the pressure from my chest. Believe me this is very embarrassing in public. First people think your dying and I can't respond because I lose my voice as I'm gasping for air. Then I belch uncontrollably.
Avatar f tn Hi, Some anti-hypertensive medications are known to cause cough, ACE inhibitors are one of them. The drug that is currently prescribed to you, may also cause cough but less frequently than the ACE inhibitors. Nevertheless, Hydrocholorthiazide may cause dryness of the mouth, which may be the actual reason for the cough. There are other causes for chronic irritative cough which may include, irritation, sensitivity or allergy to common allergens such as cigarette smoke, dust or pollen.

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.

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 Im 13 and i have had that issue since i was 7. Just dont cough or itch it makes it worse take cough medecine (generic or prescribed) and drink water. Take long breaths and ease the itching/coughing fit. It will end in about 5 minutes depending on the severness of your cough.
685931 tn?1226969988 Hello, The common cause for itchy throat and cough is air borne allergy. Cough is a way that the body clears particles such as allergens and secretions from the airways. Some common causes of chronic cough include asthma, allergic rhinitis, sinus problems (for example sinus infection),post nasal drip and esophageal reflux of stomach contents.Since most of the respiratory problems have been investigated,these possibilities should be probed.Pls discuss these possibilities with your doctor.
Avatar f tn What happens is your sinus drains to your throat (post nasal drip). This causes mucus to accumulate in your throat, cough, scratchy/sore throat. Do you get frequent headaches? Especially behind the eyes? You may want to talk to your doctor about this. If I am right, you may have to start on an allergy medication.
