Feeling of itching while coughing, breathing discomfort, heavy mucus. Is itching sensation normal?

How come when I cough , I feel like I have an itch? It s driving me crazy. I ve been sick for about 3 days now, and idk if it s a small cold or something serious. But this morning I woke up with it kinda hard to breath because I had a lot of mucus in my chest or wherever, so I had to cough to clear it up. Just wondering if the coughing and getting itching sensation is tied to any of that.

hi..
you have sore throat, associated with itching, cough with expectoration..
initially probably you had acute pharyngitis which has gone for lower respiratory tract infection..
see an ENT surgeon for the examination, and swab test..
you need to put on antibiotics, analgesics, losenzes, multivitamins.. and expectorants..
see your doctor for the prescription..
