I've had minor cough for the past week, not constant but more like when my throat starts to itch. What causes itchy throat? I drink plenty of fluids.

In brief: Hard to tell

The most likely answer is a viral infection especially if the cough goes away after a few weeks and is not getting worse.
However if persistent and worsening, you will need to see your dcotr.
