Lung infection for a month long. Why do I have itchy, dry cough? Blame the surroundings?

I am atbthe end of a 5 month long lung infection which affected my ears and throat . Whilst i am 90% better, one thing i am struggling with is my throat. Whilst at home or outside it is fine but as soon as i enter an air conditiined office or hotel, my throat gets scratchy, itchy, dry and makes me start coughing again. I can t avoid offices and hotels as my job requires me to be inside these. What can i do to protect my throat from the affects of air conditioned environments?

What seems to be the thing is ---
It is because of your nose that the air is not properly humidified and , so dry air goes inside and irritates the throat.
You should see whether you have recurrent cold or not.
If yes get it treated .
If no then use normal saline sprays easily available every where and also use neosporin onitment for local application in nose two times a day.
in doubt do reply
