Really Dry Throat cant even swallow

My throat is so dry. It doesn't hurt, but I can barely swallow. Making my right ear itch. Is there anything I can do to make it moist again? This is keeping me up at nigh.t

I need to drink thru out the night when I am feeling like this. I also try a herbal thing I have used for years called cyclone cider. It is at most health food stores....
I am sick with a cold and sore throat right now myself, and the sleep goes out the back door, too. I hate this as I love a good nite's sleep!
Do you find you breath thru your nose, too?

Re: Intense Sore Throat any suggestions?

Hi,
I have the same prob too--sore throat and it makes my right ear itch--what does this mean? I attributed it to the dry weather and my crappy AC.

I'm definitely no expert, but, I think it has to do with allergies. Might want to try an OTC allergy med.....that may clear it up.

There are a ton! Just don't use anything for colds or sinus.....only specifically meds for allergies.....most OTC meds (for allergies) work the same and have (mostly) the same results. Although....sucking on cough drops (the good ones..like Riccola) will also help your throat from drying up!

Hope I've helped!

Try some Benadryl, or if that makes ya sleepy, maybe go with some Claritin or something.
