For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually.

Doctor can check: A person who cannot stop coughing needs to be evaluated and treated, by her doctor. Coughing should not be nonstop.

I really wish: That I could help you figure out what it is without an exam. Sadly we just aren't there yet with technology. If you can spare the time, try and get seen in person.

Throat itching: Greetings. The throat itching may be from an allergic reaction. Your airway is obviously stable and I'm assuming swallowing is normal. An antihistamine such as Claritin, Allegra or Zyrtec may help. Benadryl (diphenhydramine) will work fastest but may cause drowsiness. See your doctor. Testing for foods in your diet as well as anything new to your environment should be targeted for evaluation. Good Luck. ...Read more
