Our expert says:
There are many causes of a scratchy throat. Most commonly this is due to a post-nasal
drip. I would suggest you try some over
the counter antihistamines, which you can ask your pharmacist for. However, acid coming up the food pipe and
various other chronic conditions of the upper throat and airways may be causing
this. If the antihistamines don’t help,
then you need to seek medical help.
