In brief: Possibly

Allergies can certainly give you that feeling, but so can acid reflux(heartburn).
This needs to be evaluated, so i would start with your primary care physician.

In brief: Possibly

Throat clearing can be a symptom of allergy, but other disease states can trigger it as well.
Other possible triggers include chronic sinusitis, reflux, or motor tics. I recommend being evaluated by you doctor or an allergist to determine the cause.
