Was at outdoor party yesterday with many cigarette smokers. This morning woke up with tight chest feeling and scratchy throat. Should I worry?
Irritant: Exposure to cigarette smoke can be very irritating to the nose and lungs when inhaled second-hand. It can be even more irritating to people with a history of rhinitis or asthma. If you are truly having difficulty breathing, wheezing, feeling like you can't get enough air in, please go to emergency department or urgent care. If minor symptoms, will likely go away soon. ...Read more
What would cause brief hoarse voice and scratchy throat? It lasts for maybe 30 seconds then goes away, starts as a tickle under tonsil it feels like
Could be reflux...: Since it doesn't sound like you are sick, and allergy symptoms would last longer, I wonder if you are having gastro-esophageal reflux. When a little bit of the highly acidic liquid from your stomach sloshes up into the esophagus, it can actually cause hoarseness, spasm of the voice box, cough and wheezing. Check with your doctor.

I had watermelon juice on sat nite, fine. Ate a sliver of w/melon on sunday, itchy throat and hoarse voice for an hour. Is it allergy? Do I worry?
Itchy throat, hoarse: Yes, you should be careful and get this checked out. Hoarseness can mean your vocal cords are swelling. This is a very dangerous symptom of a systemic allergy, because if they swell too much, they can close off your airway. You need to be tested for watermelon allergy. If it's positive you'll need to avoid watermelon and carry epipen (epinephrine). ...Read more
Sex was protected& ejac in condom after pullout. Oraquick neg @5.5wk. Now (7wk) have scratchy/tight throat& 1 jawline lump. Should I be worry of hiv?
from my experience you did not get HIV and this set of symptoms you are describing are not HIV signs.
But, there are better tests than the antibody tests you are describing. There are HIV viral testing protocols that can close the window to 14 to 21 days from exposure. Please find a place where they are experts in this vital medical concern.
Congratulations on your safe sex practices. ...Read more
I've been sneezing up a storm lately, but no itchy eyes, hoarse throat etc. That'd suggest it's allergies.
Still likely: Allergies don't have to affect anything other than your nose, so it still could be allergies. Anything that irritates the lining of your nose, like pollen, pepper or even some new lipstick or makeup that you put on your upper lip could be doing this. I'm sure it's a nuisance but it's not dangerous. Noses like to clear themselves out especially if irritated, and that's often a good thing! ...Read more
5min protected sex. Oraquick test neg @6wk. Wk7 have throat little itchy/dry/tight/feels like somethin stuck&light sneeze no fever. Hiv related or no?
Probably fine: It sounds as if you wisely used a condom, and now are getting a cold. If you were a man having vaginal intercourse with a woman, your risk is low even if she is infected. Since you are clearly very worried (and I understand), ask your physician whether you can pay extra for a pcr test for the virus; you'll know for certain. ...Read more
Iv had a scratchy throat for about 3 weeks, not really a sore throat, tried penV and cefalexin...it didn't work and my voice gets hoarse at night. Its getting better but slowly.
Every 2ish yrs for the last 10, I have an allergic reaction to something, but the cause is never determined nor clear. Angioedema ruled out last time. Could this be something other than an allergy? Symptoms: tight throat, extreme hives, itchy tongue.
Urticaria/angioedema: Is what you described, not sure what did you mean when you mentioned that angioedema was ruled out! Those recurrent acute attacks warrant keeping injectable epinephrine handy as well as antihistamines to use in case you need them again. You need to be evaluated by an allergist/immunonlogist, or a dermatologist, check aaaai. Org or acaai. Org for an allergist in your area, best wishes ...Read more

Drainage year round. No runny nose. Throat can be scratchy and singing gives hoarse-ish sound. Can often hack up a little colored sputum into the sink. Tips?
My wife has ra. And has been having intermittent cough, hoarseness. Had red, itchy eyes also. Also now a small lump side of throat.
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. ...Read more
