How To Deal With Itchy Throat And GERD?
Hello my doctor is ad gerd .. I often cough and itchy throat apkah a good way to get rid of this itchy pharynx … and may I if I have vitamin B complex for this gerd
Good afternoon, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. GERD or gastroesophageal reflux disease is a condition when stomach acid rises to the esophagus or even to the edge of the oral cavity due to weak retaining muscles above the stomach. There are various factors that can trigger the emergence of GERD, including late eating, stress, lack of sleep, eating spicy, sour, oily foods, consumption of coffee, tea, soda, smoking, eating too much at one time, and immediately sleeping after eating.
Regarding your question, even though you have a history of GERD, and among the symptoms of GERD are discomfort in the throat, coughing and swallowing pain, your complaints are not necessarily purely caused by GERD, especially if you do not have the main symptoms of GERD in the form of heartburn, heartburn, nausea, and tightness. Coughing and itching are only side effects and if these symptoms appear without the main symptoms, care must be taken to determine whether GERD is the cause.
So, further tests are needed to be able to eliminate these complaints by seeing whether your complaints actually occur due to bacterial infections, viral infections, allergies, inflammation, cigarette smoke, etc., because one treatment may not be suitable for other causes. For this reason, you should check your complaint with a general practitioner, so that proper treatment can be given.
Meanwhile, multiply the consumption of warm water mixed with honey, reduce the consumption of foods that are too sweet, avoid cigarette smoke, and stay away from pollution. For B complex vitamins, it doesn't matter if you want to consume it, but B vitamins do not have the ability to reduce stomach acid so if your problem is actually stomach acid, you should look for other treatments. So, hopefully answering your question.
