Allergist and Immunologist (Pediatric) Questions Throat Disorders

Constant itchy, scratchy throat

My son, who is 8 years old, has suddenly come down with constant itchy and scratchy throat issues. It makes him cough all the time and he even has trouble eating. What could this possibly be?

Does he have allergies? Did he get choked on anything? Any fever or sinus drainage? He will need to be checked if problems persist. Try OTC zyrtec or claritin if allergies.
