Itchy throat is a common symptom for a variety of upper
affections. Such affections include:
Infections, allergies, gastro-esophageal reflux disease etc.
- Infections are the most common causes of itchy throat which
can be caused by bacterial or viral or fungal infections. Bacterial
infections (strep throat, etc.) and viral infections (common cold, flu, etc.)
can occur in healthy individuals, where as fungal infections usually occur
in conditions of immunosuppression
like AIDS, diabetes mellitus
Bacterial infections require antibiotics unlike viral infections
Allergies could be due to ingested food or inhaled particles and it
persists longer and occurs more frequently and accompanied by
other symptoms of allergy like runny nostrils and sneezing. Antihis-
taminics such as chlorpheniramine
are widely used
Other causes of itchy throat include excessive strain on larynx during
a singing or shouting encounter and gastroesophageal reflux disease
in which there is a reflux of acid up to the throat.
