What causes itchy,dry throat with dry cough after tonsils removal?

Hi I am 43yrs old and have recently had my tonsills out. Should have had them out a long time ago. One of the reasons i had them removed was for the past 2yrs i have had an ongoing itchy throat and dry cough that keeps me awake all night. I find my self trying to sleep almost upright as this is the only way i stop coughing long enough to fall asleep only to wake every hour. I have tried many medications including Nexium for reflux, which apparently i have! The fact that my nose and eyes are itchy seems to be over looked by every doctor i see. I have taken an aray of hayfever medications but i am at my wits end.

Hello,

I read carefully your query and understand your concern.

The symptoms seem to be related to an allergy.

I suggest using antihistamines such as Cetirizine 10 mg daily.

I also recommend to use a syrup for the cough with Dexometorphan.

I also recommend to drink liquids.

Hope my answer was helpful.

If you have further queries feel free to contact me again.

Kind regards!
