    Unhappy Annoying throat problem

    For two weeks now I have been dealing with something in my throat. My family says it's nothing, so I believe it. Then it never went away until now. Family still says it's nothing and suggested I take an antibiotic that was prescribed for someone else. I didn't take it. I didn't know where it's been.

    I am dealing with an itchy and tickly throat and occasional bouts of coughing that comes and goes on during the day. Goes away when I eat and sleep, but for the rest of the day it's there. I've tried everything. A salt water gargle, ginger tea, Betadine gargle, but it doesn't seem to go away or provide the relief I was looking for. Even took an antihistamine for five and nothing. Now, the itchy and tickly sensation is now accompanied by a tightness or a feeling of something in my throat.

    What do I have? I wanted to go to the doctors for days now but my family wouldn't let me and I don't know why.

    Before you say COVID-19, no, it isn't COVID-19.

    Try an otc acid reducer such as Pepcid. Start there and see if it improves. You could have siilent reflux.

    It's all a matter of perspective!
