My itchy throat

The back of my throat has been itching me for the last three weeks. I have gargled with warm salt water like the doctor suggested without any improvement. I have also taken some worm medicines. What else can I do?

Your itchy throat could be due to some allergy as usually happens when you have a cold or virus infection. Allergies are one of the most common causes of an itchy throat. An allergic reaction occurs when a substance called an allergen triggers an immune system response in your body. You may need to continue to gargle with some warm salt water or mouth wash for some more days.  In addition, honey and lime have been found very useful. However, if  the itching does not stop or you also develop some sore throat or fever in addition to the itching, you may  need to see your doctor for another check-up.
