Tickle in Throat that Won't Go Away

Last night before I went to bed I found myself coughing constently. I took some Deslym, which usually works, so that I would be able to sleep. I woke up about an hour after falling asleep with a coughing fit that wouldn't stop. I had this really annoying tickle in my throat. I sucked on candy and drank water, but it didn't make the tickle go away. I ended up piling up pillows so that I would be sitting up when I slept. When I woke up this morning the tickle was still there.

The cough is dry and can sound very hacking at times.

Please help. I want this tickle to go away.

Re: Tickle in Throat that Won't Go Away

Sorry you're both going through this! I've had this many times and it is so irritating. Really nothing you can do but let it run it's course.
Mine is usually in the spring and fall when there is much dampness in the air. I was diagnosed as asmathic/bronchittis many years ago.
We live near a river and with all the mold and such, many people in this area are effected with the same thing. I sometimes would have to use an inhaler to breathe as well, as I would feel suffocated.
Again sorry you feel this way and hope you get over it soon.

Get a scrip for codeine cough syrup. That's do it.
