What causes severe thirst and dry throat?

Hi, I have been feeling constantly thirsty and having a dry throat for the past two days. I have seasonal allergies and take Zyrtec-D only when needed. I eat a healthy diet and haven t changed anything in my diet. I have been taking Monistat 3 Day to clear up a yeast infection. I ve also been using a new mouthwash that has a teeth whitner in it. I don t really know what this could be. I am 35, 5 6, 150 lbs., have mild seasonal allergies, and exercise induced asthma.

Hello,

Antihistamine medication may can cause dry throat. Allergies or granular pharyngitis or post nasal drip or vitamin deficiency may can cause dry throat.

Use salt water gargling thrice a day. Avoi cool drinks and freeze water. If you're suffering from Sjogrens syndrome or connective tissue disorders then you may consult your physician / ENT specialist he will examine and treat you accordingly.

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

Regards,
