    Q (kandyluv) : Hi doctor Samir, i have been having severe throat iching and i want to know the cause and how it can be solved. Thanks

    A (doctor) : Thanx for ur question
    Conditions that may cause itchy throat:
    -Cold windy weather
    -‘Sick building disease’ from excessive indoor heating or air condition
    -Caffeine in coffee, sodas and energy drinks
    -Sjögren’s syndrome
    -Medications, such as antidepressants, drugs to treat urine incontinence
    -Prolonged speaking, singing or yelling may leave you with sore itchy throat that may need few days to resolve.
    -foreign body as piece of fish bone..
    -irritant substanes ,gases from industrial pollution ,dust,house hold cleaners etc...
    -spsychlogical causes pour attract attention..
    -infection of the throat viral ,bacterial or fungi ..
    -siogren s syndrome..
    -GERD gastro-esophageal reflux disease.
    -vomiting..and ther are others causes .
    so we have to treat to try to remove the cause.
    Immediate relief from an itchy throat, when your throat is dry, is by drinking some water. Having a bottle of water or a cup of herbal tea . Being well hydrated is essential. If you excrete at least 200 ml of clear white or yellow urine every morning, you are well hydrated.

    Try to remove the cause. In air pollution, close the windows. Breath through the nose, and do not speak loudly all the day, if possible.

Is there any chance of recovering the my sense? please advice.Thanks

    A (doctor) : its nice from you to call me (HI Samir) like un close friend .

    Q (manya) : For how long does a patient (aged 5 years) who has had a tonsillectomy use Andolex

    A (doctor) : thanx for ur query
    i think that the ANdolex is an oral rinse ,it has an analgesic effect which takes away the pain ,personalement i dont use it for my patients post tonsillectomy , any way he can use it just for few days.
    if he have fevre +pain u have to call ur ENT.

    A (doctor) : The most common cause of a cough is an upper respiratory tract infection, usually viral (such as the common cold) but it can be bacterial. so just i like to ask you how old are you?and is your sore throat getting you down?do you have high fever? if no ican can give you some advice which my grand mother learn it me ;
    drink hot drinks and soup
    avoid cold soft drinks
    gargle with lukewarm salt water with a few drops of lemon at least 3-4 times at day.
    finaly check with your doctor if chills, fever, etc...

    for the hoarseness that would suggest the need for an office visit its important for examiner the vocal cord.

    Q (ofie) : I have done a nasal wash some 13 years ago. Ever sice I have pais in the pallets and can see some unusual lines in there. Do not have the pain when eating. Pain is intense and worsening. Experiece pains on the forehead, tensed eyes and some traces from my forehad, around the nose to below my nose. ENT ad Dental surgeons dont see aything wrong but it hurts so badly. Please advise

    A (doctor) : sorry , but ur question is nt clear
    what u mean nasal wash//??

    Q (shirlskc) : Hello doctor, I have an year old daughter who has been suffering from nasal congestion and cough intermittently for the last 2 weeks. Tried her on T-minic cold..but with less relief. She has thick mucus coming from nose and a productive cough. Any home remedies or an alternate solution would be appreciated. Thank you.

    A (doctor) : thnx for ur question
    the only treatment that we have to offer is symptomatic. .
    cleaning out the nose with the bulb syringe and serum physiologique may be helped by having the child sleep in a semi-upright position on pillows .
    if fever beyond 48 hours;severe cough consistently interfering with sleep and/or causing vomiting; elevated respiratory rate and persistence of troublesome respiratory symptoms continuously more than 10 jours that would suggest the need for an office visit
    best regards

    A (shirlskc) : Thanks doc...it was of great help ! Have a nice day.
