Raspy upper chest & scratchy throat , can it be allergy ?

I am 33yrs old, 5ft 8, 350lbs (yes I know I need to lose weight and am looking into Lap Band), I have Psoriasis and NonAlcoholic Fatty liver disorder. I have had my appendix/adnoids/tonsils out, ear tubes, scar revision on my face from a dog bite, and my tendons/ligaments reattached on my Right tumb all as a minor. I had my Left Ovary removed almost 5yrs ago due to a large cist. Right now my issue is that my throat is feeling scratchy and I have noticed that I am a bit raspy in my upper chest (can feel it & if you were to listen with a stethascope I know you would hear it). Could this just be allergy related or viral? I am really broke right now and do not want to go into get checked out just to be told to take some Cough Syrupt and let it run its course. Thank you for your time and advise!!!
