Brief Answer: get ENT consultation Detailed Answer: Hello mam, You have irritation in throat. There can be 2 reasons for that-- 1.Nasal cause like nasal discharge, allergy etc. Because of which there is dripping of nose at back in throat and then you develop irritation in throat. 2.the other cause could be reflux from stomach which irritates the throat. You may require antacid and antireflux medicine and if its nasal cause then antibiotic and decongestants. You need to consult ENT specialist and get examined. In doubt do reply.
