Cough Tickle in Throat?


Few medical symptoms are more irritating than a nagging tickle in your throat accompanied by coughing. If you are recovering from a cold, flu, or sinus infection, your cough may be the last symptom to fade. Full recovery from one of these conditions should not take longer than two weeks, however, so be sure to see your doctor and medical provider if you are still coughing after that time.

If you have a chronic, constant cough accompanied by a tickle in your throat, you should visit your healthcare provider to rule out one of more of the possible underlying conditions: allergies; sinus problems, including post-nasal drip; bronchitis or pneumonia; a reaction to medication, such as Capoten, Vasotech, or ACE inhibitors; emphysema, chronic obstructive disease; or sarcoidosis.
