Cough Up Phlegm After Drinking Alcohol
Stuff going up/down: Sounds like acid reflux to me. But upper respiratory issues (sinusitis, allergies) causing mucus drainage down the throat or acid reflux up the throat can commonly result in those symptoms. Acid reflux or "silent reflux" commonly causes throat clearing, sensation of something stuck in throat, voice changes, post-nasal drip or phlegm in throat, and cough.

Dry skin is the most common cause for itching without a rash, consider applying a moisturizer <3 mins after bathing to see if this helps. Make sure that no new medication or supplement was introduced shortly before the onset of itching. ...Read more
