What causes Sore throat?

I have a severely dry and itchy throat that has lasted over a year. It gets so bad that I vomit because of it most every day. It also puts me in embarrassing situations as when it takes over, I cough suddenly and violently and liquids don t seem to help this go away.

Hi
Welcome to Health care magic

I went through the history you have provided here.
It seems from the history that you are having chronic sore throat. This indicates chronic inflammations of the throat in the form of chronic pharyngitis or chronic laryngitis.
The common causes are infections or allergies.
Hence this requires evaluation by your ENT doctor by simple office tests like laryngoscopy to find out the underlying cause and treatment accordingly.

Do consult your doctor for examination to find out the underlying cause and treatment accordingly.

Hope this is helpful to you.
