Having irritation in throat, cough and hoarse voice. What is the remedy? - Online Doctor Chats
I have irritation and scarred feeling in my throat which leads to coughing every few minutes. My voice has become coarse, and it sounds almost as if I have been shouting for hours. If I talk for more than a few minutes at a stretch, it feels like I have been shouting for hours. It hurts when I swallow anything. I have had these type of cases of throat irritation in the past but they typically lasted for 1-3 days. this time it has been going on for past 6 days and it is more severe as compared to earlier times. Do I need to worry, what remedy can I get.
Can you give me a couple of minutes to read your post.
sure please...also, plz note that the post was a few weeks ago
this is a followup on that post
Sure give me a minute..
Please proceed with the follow up.
so after that, I went to see a doctor who after examining my throat said there is constant dripping of mucus which is irritating the throat. he gave me a few pills which cured the hoarse voice and also the pain
however I am still coughing every few mins and that has been going on for about 3-4 weeks now
when I cough, I still feel irritation in the throat
Are you there?
I am waiting for your advise
Please proceed to describe if you have any other symptoms?
If there are no symptoms, i would like to know
how long ago did you consult the doctor?
And can you name the medicines prescribed to you?
ok..I visited the doctor about 3 weeks ago, however he gave me pills from his own clinic (loose pills in a plastic) and I am not sure what medicines were those. I have been facing constant cough ever since. I spit out mouthfull of mucus when I cough about 1-2 times a day. after i spit it out, it is more relaxing for a few mins then usual, but then coughing starts again.
other than that there is nothing else that I have noticed as unusual
Are you running fever?
Are you able to swallow food normally?
I am not sure why my replies are not going
ok..they are going now..I dont have fever and I can swollow food normally
