Brief Answer: Follows. Detailed Answer: Dear Sir , Thank you for posting your query on XXXXXXX Well looking into your problem I would like to tell you that scratchiness in throat can be a symptom of mild allergies which give rise to uncomfortable sensation and tingling in throat some times. Since there is no pain in swallowing it is less likely to be infection . I would advise you to have sips of hot liquids like milk , coffee frequently . And you must maintain adequate hydration levels as dehydration leads to dryness which can also lead to similar complaints . Take care. Dr. Shruti
