The Throat Feels Itchy And Hoarse?
, some days I have experienced problems in my throat, such as itching and hoarseness, but this condition does not cause pain to swallow. If I am forced to expel phlegm, even in the sputum there is a speck of blood.
Hello. Thank you for the question submitted to HealthReplies.com. We can understand the concern you feel.
Complaints of the throat that feels itchy and hoarse can be caused by several possibilities, which are often include:
Laryngitis (inflammation of the larynx and vocal mucosa, most often caused by excessive use of voice [vocal abuse] in the short term / upper respiratory tract infection by viral / reflux of gastric acid into the larynx and pharynx, symptoms: hoarseness, fever, coughing, runny nose, painful swallowing, mucus that runs behind the throat, tightness)
Pharyngitis (inflammation of the pharyngeal wall, viral infection is the most common cause, symptoms: sore throat, not too high fever, cough, red eyes, runny nose)
Tonsillitis (inflammation of the palatine tonsils, symptoms: fever, sore throat, enlarged lymph nodes in the neck, and commonly occur together with pharyngitis)
Common cold (also called a cold, which is a viral infection of the upper respiratory tract, symptoms: fever, sneezing, nasal congestion, body aches, headaches)
It is recommended that you consult with your doctor or ENT specialist so that evaluation and treatment is needed. The doctor will check the state of your throat using a direct laryngoscope or if indicated, with fiber optic laryngoscopy. As another suggestion at home, you can take the following steps:
Reduce talk for 2-3 days
Avoid substances that can irritate, for example: cigarettes, spicy food, drinking ice
Eat a balanced nutritious diet, including vegetables and fruits that are rich in vitamin C
Wash hands with soap and running water before eating and drinking
