Causes Of Itchy Throat And Dry Cough?
Hello ,, about 1-2 weeks lately, almost every afternoon my throat itches and dry cough. Only late afternoon. In the morning there were no complaints at all. A few months ago I had a dry cough for almost a month, and the drugs given were allergic medicines (Colergis, Aerius, u0026amp; Codipront). Is this really an allergic reaction? If so, can those drugs be taken freely according to the dosage even without a doctor’s prescription? thank you
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
An itchy throat accompanied by a cough that doesn't heal often is caused by an allergic reaction. Not only that, allergies often also cause you to sneeze, runny nose, itchy and runny eyes and nose, throat with phlegm, tightness, or various other complaints appear. This allergy occurs because of the excessive sensitivity of your body to contact with substances that are considered harmful to the body, when in fact it is not, for example cold, dry air, dust mites, pollen, animal hair, animal feces, fleas, and so on. Typically, complaints due to allergies will continue to recur as long as the originator of the allergy has not been resolved properly.
In addition to allergies, it could also be, your complaints arise due to other triggers, for example irritation, viral or bacterial infections, reflux (backflow) of stomach acid, drug side effects, impaired immunity, intruding foreign objects, and so on. Exhaustion, excessive use of the vocal cords (for example when you scream a lot), and poor endurance can make your complaints worse.
Various possibilities can cause your complaints, not only allergies. Therefore, giving anti-allergic drugs is not always right to overcome your complaints. Even most anti-allergy medicines (as you mentioned) do not belong to a class of over-the-counter medicines, so it is not appropriate to buy and consume without a doctor's prescription.
Our advice, check yourself back to the doctor or a specialist in internal medicine, while doing the following tips:
Avoid contact with substances that might cause you to be allergic
Use a mask
Do not use the fan or air conditioner excessively, use an air humidifier if necessary
Limit eating cold, oily, and artificial sweet foods or drinks first
Drink plenty of warm water
Expand also eat fruit that is rich in vitamin C
Don't smoke, stay away from the smoke too
Keep your house and residence clean
Don't cough and expel phlegm too hard
Hope this helps ...
