Hi,

Welcome to HealthcareMagic Forum,
You need to consult a good ENT specialist to get the throat examined. This can be post viral infection cough which can be really irritating, as well distressing. It can be secondary to post nasal drip or pharyngitis. Till you consult your doctor please drink plenty of warm water, avoid chilled items.

Good Luck
Regards
Dr. Naveen Kumar
