What can I do for a tickle in throat that makes me constantly need to cough?

Consider Papaya: Mild tickle in throat is often related to mild irritation from environmental allergens/irritants. When pain is not severe, consider trying papaya enzyme tablets. They are safe, natural and many of my patients relate symptomatic improvement in throat symptoms. If pain is progressive, persistent or associated with systemic symptoms such as fever, consider seeing your health care provider.

Feel a lump sensation and tickle in throat. Could it be due to allergies?

Feel a lump sensation and tickle in throat. Could it be due to allergies?

It's possible: Food allergies can lead to throat itching and swelling that may feel like a lump within minutes to hours after ingesting a food a person is allergic to. Other possibilities are post nasal drip from environmental allergies or possibly from sinus infection drainage. If symptoms improve with antihistamine that is suggestive of allergy. If persists or worsens, a doctor can help sort it out.

How to know if bronchitis or chest cold or acid reflux is what I have burning in chest throat cough n raw feeling tickle in throat to ?

How to know if bronchitis or chest cold or acid reflux is what I have burning in chest throat cough n raw feeling tickle in throat to ?

Bronchitis vs reflux: You have asked a somewhat challenging question, to which the answer would be greatly aided by a detailed history and physical exam. However, I would say duration would add a helpful clue, since there is considerable overlap in the symptoms. Speaking in generalities, bronchitis would tend to be more acute and severe, while reflux would tend to be more chronic and less severe, but exceptions abound.

77 year old woman, type 2 diabetes, tickle in throat  leading to vomiting daily?

Possible causes: Depends on your previous diabetes control, you can have gastroparesis (inability for food to move through the stomach at a normal pace) causing fullness and vomiting. Other causes include reflux disease. Post nasal drips can also cause "tickle" at back of throat but typically will not cause you to vomit. If this has been happening daily, please see your doctor for an evaluation.

Could be seallergies: Your symptoms seems to be very much as " seasonal allergic rhinitis" or inflammation of sinus due to exposure to spring pollen ! depends on your local area - pollen saturation in the air is high between february to july! you may try otc antihistamine as Allegra , nasal saline rinses to " flush nasal passages "! if more symptoms persists you may see your doc to prescribe more effective medication.

Antihistamine : Try OTC Antihistamine like Loratadine etc and keep an eye on the color of secretions if these turn to dark yellow or green you will need Antibiotics. Also try Mucinex (guaifenesin) DM for further symptomatic relief especially if difficulty with bringing up the sputum or significant cough.

Some suggestions: Sometimes fluid behind the ear drum can cause a cough. If you try a lozenge or some honey, it could provide relief. It is important to review your asthma plan. Virtual consult can be made by appt.

I had 2 chest x-ray days apart and blood test x-rays are clear they listen sound clear they found nothing I have tickle in throat with little cough?

I had 2 chest x-ray days apart and blood test x-rays are clear they listen  sound clear  they found nothing I have tickle in throat with little cough?

Question?: I presume you are asking for a diagnosis of the cause of tickle and cough. The chest X-rays & exam of the lungs are normal, as expected, since the problem is likely in your throat. Did anyone check a throat swab? Have you tried warm salt/sugar water gargles? If symptoms persist, see an ENT, but most of the time, it's viral or allergic causes that lead to these symptoms & it goes away on its own.

I dusted, vaccumed, used vapor rub, cleaned nose took bath still smell dust, tickle in throat, eyes itch, chest hurts , face itches, inner ears itch. ?

Allergies: This sounds like you have some allergies. Dust in homes can be tainted with lead dust, cockroach dander, pet dander, cigarrette smoke, among other toxins and allergic offenders. You need a whopping dose of antihistamine now, say 10 mg cetirizine by mouth. I am worried a little about your chest pain, especially if you have asthma. Do you have an albuterol inhaler at home with spacer?

If ear infection: Ees (erythromycin ethyl succinate) is a type of erythromycin, which is an antibiotic pill. It is good for 'atypical' bacteria of the ear and respiratory system. It is sometimes appropriate in persons who have failed prior treatment or who are at risk for atypicals. You should only take this on a physician's advice.
