Hi Emmanuel

The itching of the throat might be due to hay fever or chronic sinusitis and a post nasal drip. I suggest that you try using a daily antihistamine containing cetirizine 10mg or loratidine 10mg. You can add a nasal spray such as flonase that you can use once or twice a day. If this does not help after one month, then rather go to the doctor. Good luck.
