Cough...: It sounds as if you may be describing a post-nasal drip, which causes the itchy, scratchy throat and dry cough by stimulating cough receptors at the back of the throat. If an older child (> 12 years old) or adult, may try an otc decongestant and cough suppressant, usually with dextromethorphan. Throat lozenges, humidifiers, topical Vicks and offering warm liquids will also help;.
