Hello,

The symptoms you mentioned point towards an allergic cause of the throat problem. The best treatment of such etiology is to avoid the allergen which could be Pollen, dust or even dry air / heat during the cold weather. I would suggest you to start taking Tab Claritin 10mg once a day and Avamys Nasal Spray 2 puffs twice a day for 4 weeks. Steam inhalation with some liquid Vicks helps to dislodge sticky secretion's from an airway. You can also perform warm saline gargles that will be very helpful to relive the congestion in the throat.

Take care. Hope I have answered your question. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
