I have very scratchy itchy burning sore throat. Is there a home remedy?
Hello and welcome to HCM,
A scratchy itchy burning sensation in the throat suggests irritation of the throat mucosa.
Is there associated cough?
If not you can take saline water gargles atleast twice a day for symptomatic relief.
In case dry cough is also present, cough suppressants can also be taken.
