Causes Of Itchy Throat In People With Stomach Acid?
Hello Doctor, I am in control of my stomach acid problem for 4 weeks. In the past week, the stomach has improved but there are other complaints appear. My tongue and mouth cavity itchy / painful (it feels like an allergy when consuming sea fish whose flesh is red) and this started on Friday yesterday to date. Dry throat sometimes feels hot. Nasal congestion (but not to runny nose / runny). Chest sometimes so, aching from the back to the chest becomes heavy breathing but does not last long and nausea feels like when stomach acid rises. Today I control the 4th time, I told the doctor about my complaints and I was prescribed medication for gastric acid, reliever nausea / begah and pain medication for the intestine and the doctor suggested to buy betadin mouthwash for itching in my tongue. The doctor also suggested to relax because maybe I had a lot of thoughts / stress. (Because of the last ultrasound, the condition is all normal) Until I got home, during the day I tried to gargle with betadin until the base of the neck because sometimes itching up above the back jaw but not until swallowed. I let stand But, above the base of the neck like excessive heat / itching from yesterday. Am I wrong in using it? And is there another diagnosis of my new symptom?
Hello Desi, thank you for asking to HealthReplies.com.
Let me introduce myself, Dr. Rio will answer your question.
Responding to the story you gave, there are a number of possibilities regarding the problem you are complaining about, there are several possibilities here namely stomach acid complaints that are too high causing complaints that you feel, or you experience other diseases. If the stomach acid is too high some complaints that can appear such as pain in the stomach bloating, nausea / vomiting, stomach upset, etc.
Some of these possibilities are:
GERD / Gastro Esofageal Reflux Disease. Peptic ulcer. Common Cold. Pharyngitis. To find out for certain apart from the complaints you feel, the need for a physical examination directly by a doctor. Physical examination aims to find out the focus of the complaint, which later if necessary can conduct a supporting examination in accordance with the indications found during the inspection. However, if there is no abnormality in the examination, and the complaint is bearable or felt, you may experience automation.
Right now what you can do is:
Avoid stress, because stress can increase stomach acid. Avoid eating directly a lot, the recommended eating disorder is a little bit but often. So it will reduce the work of the stomach that is inflamed. Avoid spicy, or sour foods. Avoid coffee, alcohol, juice that is too acidic. Evaluate other complaints that you feel, if the complaints get worse or increase consult a doctor. That's all my answer, thank you very much :)
