The dry throat is a medical problem in which the itching and roughness appears in the throat. The person feels like putting the fingers inside the throat to scratch the itching. The same inflammation occurs even in the lower part of the tongue.
In such a situation there is a loss of taste and every relishing food appears to become tasteless. Every person may become afflicted with the problem.
Do not take the soreness of the throat lightly and suppose it to be occurring due to the changing seasons or hot and cold weather.
The sore throat could be due to the infection of the throat or tonsillitis. The soreness in the throat due to the change in the season is very common. The prickly thorn like sensation occurs in the throat together with a problem to speak and swallow. It happens due to the infection of the bacteria or the virus.
The throat infection gets cured itself, but in certain cases the treatment becomes necessary.
The itching in the throat may be due to infection which causes hoarse voice, cough, fever, headache, tiredness and pain in the throat especially while swallowing anything.
Our throat has two tonsils situated on both sides of the throat. They stop the germs and bacteria from entering inside the throat. But sometimes these tonsils themselves get infected and lead to tonsillitis. In such a situation the color of the tonsils become a little or or pink and red. Sometimes white spots appear on the tonsils.
The infection of tonsillitis gets cured by antibiotics, but the situation becomes more serious when the infection occurs due to streptococcus hemolyticus bacteria. In such circumstances the infection spreads to the heart and kidneys and causes serious diseases.
But it is not always necessary to rush to the physician to get the medicines for the treatment of the problem. Some home remedies are very effective in such situations. But don’t hesitate to rush for the medical aid in case the blood comes out of the throat or any serious problem occurs.
