Itchy throat chest congestion cough what is it?

How long?: Itching is often associated with allergy. If you have had these symptoms for more than 2 weeks or they have been recurring, they are likely from allergies. Consult an allergist to find out what may be ailing you and whether you may have asthma as well. If there is a family history of allergies, then your chances of having allergies get much higher.

OTC meds: Medications like Guaifenesin which could be found in Robitussin or Mucinex (guaifenesin) can be helpful. Also for nasal stuffiness you could try afrin nasal spray one spray in each nostril twice a day. Please only take for three days as there's a high risk of rebound rhinitis if you take for longer than three days.

Had a cough all day, but now chest is tight, itchy throat, and trouble breathing. I feel weak. Anxiety from being sick or something else?

Seek treatment: You should be evaluated. If you have a respiratory infection with difficulty breathing, it could get worse and you may benefit from a breathing treatment to open the airways in the chest. Sometimes a cold with bad cough can also trigger asthma, or "twitchy" airways and can make it hard to breathe. It could be anxiety, but that should be considered after these other possibilities.

What to take for a itchy throat?

Try antihistamine: But even more important, find out what may be triggering the itchy throat for example, do you have the itching only after having eaten certain fruits? If so, I suspect that you may have hay fever as well. If you have any problem with throat closing up on you, then you will need to consult an allergist.
