Physical exam: Throat dryness is a common symptom that can be caused by many different things. The only way to tell you why you are having this is to look at your throat. So best thing is to see your pcp. No medicine can be suggested for this until the cause is known. However, my guess is that it will resolve on its own in a few days and if it doesn't, then you definitely need to see a doc. Best wishes, ariel.
