Default Constant tickle in the throat, cough

You know how it is just when you have to give that important talk or have to impress someone in business or social setting, the tickle in the throat threatens to derail your efforts! It can be very distracting, and sometimes painful as well, if you have a persistent tickle in throat. Generally, this is a symptom of cold. A throat infection may be one of the causes of the ticklish feeling in the throat. It can be one of the early signs of common cold or may even indicate tonsillitis. Sometimes, along with the tickle, there may be irritation and a visible redness in the throat. You will feel a constant need to clear your throat, and this can be very annoying for you, as well as others around you. Our vocal cords are very delicate and the constant throat clearing might damage them. Allergies can also lead to throat tickle, but whatever the reason, I am suer that there must be some home remedies for sore throat relief, it seems a bit trivial to go to the doctor with?

I get this a lot in the winter months. There are some simple remedies that you can try, to treat tickle in throat with cough. Dry and sore throat can be a very uncomfortable feeling as it impairs our speech and affects our eating habits. Seasonal allergies or a sudden change in climatic conditions can cause a tickle in throat. Let us take a look at some of these remedies.

There are also plenty of over-the-counter cough pills that will give you relief from your throat irritation. All you need to do is suck on these tablets and they slowly provide respite to the throat by soothing the affected area. However, these pills are only meant for short term relief and cannot provide a long term solution or cure. If the problme does not clear up you should see your doctor.

I thought I would just add some of the things that might help (now into my third week with a cold/cough!)

The best remedy against inflammation is to have antibiotics prescribed by a doctor. Although you might feel a little weak after an antibiotic dose, it is a good way to guard yourself against any further complications. There are some over-the-counter antibiotics available, but it is not wise to self medicate.

Also Doctors suggest to drink a lot of water if you are feeling a tickle in your throat. Hydrating the throat thins the mucus and also soothes the pharynx. Water is also effective in clearing cough and irritation. Hydrating the body is important, so remember to drink some hot soups along with your meals. you could also take a glass of lukewarm water and add a pinch of salt to it, and stir until properly mixed. Use this solution to gargle your throat at least 4-5 times a day. Do not use hot water as you may burn yourself. It is also preferred if you drink lukewarm water throughout the day instead of cold water.

Many medicinal qualities that are found in honey are good for the tickle in throat. Take 3-4 tablespoons full of honey and squeeze a little lime in it, now add this to a glass of warm water and drink slowly. Repeat this drink 3-4 times a day and see the benefits, you will feel an instant reduction of your irritation. (this is my favourite!)

I have often found that an excellent remedy to try is Apple Cider Vinegar: for constant sore throat is adding 2-3 spoons of apple cider vinegar to warm water along with honey, and drinking it a few sips at a time. You can also use this concoction to gargle your throat few times in a day. It really does help. You could try Ginger Tattoo and boil a cup of water and add a big piece of ginger to it. Let the water boil until it becomes yellowish in colour. You can also add a couple of cinnamon sticks to this, along with honey to improve the taste. Let the tea cool down a bit before you start to drink. You can have this tea a couple of times a day and drinking it just before going to sleep has benefits as well.

A tickle in throat can really put you off work and disturb your concentration, but with a little bit of care you can get over this problem. A scratchy throat is generally a symptom of some other underlying problems, so it is advisable to increase the intake of Vitamin C to strengthen your immune system.

It is really distract the conversation in between while we are talking. The constant tickle is sigh of cough in our chest. We need to deal with it as early as possible to control it.
