Itchy throat, red spots close to throat. What could it be?

about 4 months ago out of the nowhere i started feeling my throat really itchy ..really really itchy i wish i couldve scratched it .. it was a continuous itch for about 2 weeks, it went away but it came back for another week or so. Ever since then it comes and goes. It won t be itchy for about 3 weeks or a month and one day i ll simply wake up with an itchy throat for a couple days again. When it first happened I had pink/red little spots close to my throat on the top, those went away though, what could that be?

It is likely that the itch is due to an allergy and maybe triggered by something you are eating or inhaling. Please meet an allergy specialist as he maybe able to identify as to what exactly s causing the allergy and guide you further. Thanks
