Itchy Throat And Everytime You Cough At Night
if at night the throat itches until every time you want to say coughing cough, and in the morning coughing up with a lot of sputum. But during the day coughing with regular phlegm is not as much as the morning. But there is no fever or flu and shortness of breath. I guess why?
Hello Ervina, thank you for asking.
Itching in the throat can occur due to inflammation in the throat. Symptoms can be followed by several other complaints such as coughing, painful swallowing, a lump in the throat, and so on. Some of the causes that can underlie complaints of itching in the throat include:
Viral infections, such as the common cold, influenza, and respiratory tract due to other viruses
Bacterial infections, such as tuberculosis, pneumonia
Allergic reactions due to certain triggers such as cold, dust, pollen
Irritation due to cigarette smoke, vehicle smoke, reflux / stomach acid, and others
To find out the exact cause of course it is necessary to do a complete examination starting from the physical examination and additional checks needed such as blood tests, sputum examination, chest X-ray images, and so on. In general, the most common cause is a viral infection that does not have specific treatment, the best treatment is to increase the body's immune system.
For that, the things that can be done now are:
Eat healthy and nutritious foods, multiply fruits and vegetables
Drink a lot of water
Get enough rest
Avoid overly spicy foods
Avoid triggers that cause symptoms
If the complaint continues or even burdens immediately consult a doctor to get further treatment. In the midst of the current COVID-19 pandemic if complaints can be resolved at home, it is advisable to postpone seeing a doctor and stay at home. Use a mask if you have to leave the house, for example when you have to see a doctor, if you have respiratory symptoms and avoid using public transportation as much as possible. Keep a minimum distance of 1m from other people and wash your hands regularly with soap and running water.
Thank you, hopefully useful. Stay healthy.
