Anything or nothing.: A tickle in one's throat after learning husband has strep throat, can mean anything or mean nothing. That's because just thinking about strep throat can bring on a tickle. Also, just about anything else can bring on a tickle... including pollen, dust, cold viruses, strep throat, the flu, dry air, wet air, cold air, hot air, etc... One can see her doctor in a few days for a strep throat swab test.
