cough*cough*cough: endless ticklish throat

regardless of that softball for Newt, I really am bothered by this hacking. it's not heavy, just constant, like trying to clear my throat 19 times a minute. even original Ricola recipe only calms it for a few minutes.

Root cause ?

Tickling is usually excess mucous production.
Excess mucous production is usually viral, bacteria, or allergen cause.

ever since the ragweed kicked in I've been suffering, but I think it may also be viral since the whole family seems afflicted with same.

Reflux can do this as well. But I'm betting allergens.

Are you taking medication for hypertension?
One of the common side effects of ACE inhibitors (like lisinopril) is a persistent dry cough.

bad air of any kind can do this...

The air quality around sacramento has been horrible recently and several times I get a little scratch in my throat like you describe. Feels like I ate something with a dry throat and something gets caught and WILL NOT go away.

Recent trips to the mountains makes everything better within a few hours.

I've had a scratchy sore throat for 3 weeks due excess drainage. My wife talked me into switching to her generic
Allegra a few days ago from my generic Zrytec and it's really helped. She was going to make go to the Dr. today
if there was no change over the weekend.

Either gargle with hot heavily salted water, or, a 50/50 solution of water and peroxide. Gargle for 30 seconds

... and if you don't feel better soon, please see a doctor before it gets bad. Has anyone heard from the guy who was so ill? Dennis, IIRC. Hope he's doing okay!

Ozone levels in Sacramento are usually not that bad. It's the foothills that get hammered.

Then you have all those nasty Oak trees and their isoprenes. :-)
