My 7 yo son constantly sniffs, clears his throat and mouth stretches. We have tried allergy meds to no avail. He does it so much his throat is raw?

In brief: Possible Tic

It is possible that this is unrelated to allergies.
He may have developed a tic. If so, then this will often resolve on its own. Drawing it to his attention can make it last longer. This is just a thought based on his symptoms. I would have him evaluated by his physician.
