Hi. Every time I get any illness that irritates my throat I get a really annoying cough that lasts for weeks and weeks sometimes. My throat is so incredibly reactive. Currently I am just recovering from Covid and a sinus infection and have a little bit of post nasal drip that is triggering the cough. I’m not coughing much out so a lot of the time it’s dry and makes my throat feel almost strangled. It is really taking a toll on my emotional health. I use a humidifier, drink lots of tea, have an antihistamine nasal spray but it just won’t quit. Any ideas? And how long do these symptoms usually linger for you?

      When I switched to water only for 2 years now, that helped the most so far. But I still cough do to itchy throat/post nasal drip, nothing like haulking spit from morning to dark due to post nasal

      I've been dealing with post nasal and cough 24/7 for 12 years and can't figure it out. Have you tried stopping your nasal spray? Sometimes over use can make it worse, also cut out dairy for a few weeks and only drink water and more of it to thin out your mucus production

        @smalls1 I actually just started the nasal spray…12 years, that’s rough, I’m sorry. I have been drinking lots and that does help.
