Throat irritation


Sore throat is an annoying, unpleasant symptom. I want to get rid of him as soon as possible, but for this we need to establish the cause of discomfort. Why is throat tickling? Colds, allergies, pungent smell of smoke - many can respond with irritation of the sensitive mucosa. Having dealt with the origins of the problem, you can almost always eliminate it.. Or soften, weaken sensations.

Stuck, throat discomfort appeared, the person immediately mentally searches for the reason. Do you have a cold? Nutritional errors causing allergies? Or a reaction to a stunning almost literally new colleague's perfume? It is not always possible to identify the "culprit" quickly. The sore throat happens without a cold, even without an allergy (although with them, too). They cause a symptom of a problem in the throat itself, or perspiration is a secondary symptom arising from other diseases.

Throat diseases are divided into:

  1. Flowing with inflammation,
  2. Non-inflammatory.

Viral colds are the predominant group. Massively, to the extent of a pandemic, inflammation of the nasopharynx spread during the cold season. Air conditioners begin this season long before the weather is stable, back in the summer. The heat is on the street, and office workers are ill with ARI. Diseases are associated with air conditioning indirectly, in a chain. Temperature differences “plant” immunity, reduce the adaptive capabilities of the body. Microorganisms dormant in the nasopharynx (and they are located there - always) are activated. They don’t feel the proper resistance and take us “without a fight”. Hypothermia or overheating (we add here overfatigue, stress) are not the causes of the disease, but its catalysts.

With the sore throat, diseases begin:

Pharyngitis. Damage to the throat mucosa with a pathogenic flora of a viral or bacterial nature. More often activated - viruses. A tickle begins in the throat, as if something is interfering. Burning, painful swallowing, dryness, a feeling of "scratching" are added. Inflamed, enlarged, lymph nodes (occipital, submandibular) become painful. The back wall of the larynx swells and blushes. The temperature is low-grade.

Angina. Persecution is accompanied by pain. It hurts to swallow, talk, try to clear your throat. Later, the pain intensifies, becomes constant. The temperature rises from the first days, can exceed 39 °. Angina is contagious. It is recorded more often in humid cold weather - a season of decreased immunity. Danger of complications in the heart, articular apparatus.

Laryngitis. As an independent disease is rare. Laryngitis is one of the list of symptoms of other diseases of the ARI spectrum. Colds, flu, scarlet fever, other infectious ailments begin with perspiration, dry throat occurs. Inflamed vocal cords. With laryngitis, a cough later joins, the voice changes: it becomes hoarse or completely lost. The mucous membrane of the larynx swells, upon examination, hemorrhages are visible, visible on it.

Chronic tonsillitis. Inflammatory disease of the tonsils. In remission - a slight tickle in the morning, does not cause anxiety during the day. Exacerbated tonsillitis symptoms are similar to tonsillitis. Disease-prone people who have had infectious diseases affecting the nasopharynx are affected. Gingivitis, stomatitis, caries are often complicated by tonsillitis.Pharyngomycosis. Fungal disease of nature. The fungus develops where antibiotics have been abused. Increases the likelihood of developing a fungus deficiency of vitamins. Tonsillitis also contributes to the appearance of pharyngomycosis. The back wall of the nasopharynx is covered with dense whitish spines. The throat does not hurt, the patient feels as if something is bothering him, sometimes a tickle.

In all cases of the development of inflammatory diseases of the throat - common risk factors:

  • Smoking,
  • Dustiness caused by industrial or other conditions
  • Alcohol abuse
  • The increased load on the vocal apparatus - teachers, lecturers, leaders - all those who are forced to speak a lot and loudly by occupation are more likely to suffer from throat diseases,
  • Low immunity
  • Improper nutrition.

With a cold, discomfort annoys more at night, you feel like clearing your throat, and normal sleep is disturbed.

Throat problems are not always accompanied by inflammation of his tissues. There are other, non-inflammatory, diseases.

Pharyngeal neurosis. Sometimes failures in the functioning of the nervous system provoke a feeling of discomfort in any part of the body. One of the varieties of pharyngeal neurosis - hyperesthesia - develops in people with a fragile nervous system. Violations affect the areas of the brain that control the pharyngeal region. Hyperesthesia occurs after severe stress or during protracted chronic diseases that cause sore throat.

Spasms and perspiration are felt by such patients even without exacerbation of the chronic, in the absence of inflammation. Diagnostic difficulties are common. Hyperesthesia is supplemented by other symptoms, finding out which one is the leading one is the task of an experienced doctor. Assigning examinations (MRI, X-ray), the doctor is convinced of the absence of organic changes. This is an occasion to assume: the patient has pharyngeal neurosis.

Tumors Cancer of the throat of the initial stages is not manifested by pain. When the tumor grows, the patient feels: the throat pershes, but does not hurt. A tumor is not necessarily an oncology; benign neoplasms are also possible. Persecution is constant, because a foreign body sensation disturbs a person, causes a cough. But it is impossible to cough up a tumor. A visit to the doctor, examination, treatment is necessary.

The cause of perspiration is often not localized in the pharynx. There is discomfort, soreness, "scratching", but this is a secondary symptom, the reason for it is pathological processes of a different kind. The mucous pharynx is an indicator of the state of the body, often diseases begin with discomfort in it.. These are manifestations of systemic diseases or problems of individual organs.

Allergy. It has many faces, easily disguised as other ailments. It appears on:

  • Smells (individual reaction - possible on the smell of any substance),
  • Food, especially containing preservatives, but also “clean” from them, too. Persecution as an allergic reaction is sometimes triggered by the inclusion in the menu of citrus fruits, and from chocolate, and after melon,
  • Medicines The pharmaceutical industry has been so successful that many people are oversaturated with drug chemistry. The diagnosis becomes habitual: drug multivalent allergy,
  • Book dust
  • House dust
  • Animal hair and wool products,
  • Household chemicals, perfumes act as allergens more often than other substances. From her, a cough appears, headaches - a picture similar to ARI is created, but this is an allergy.

Separately - about electronic cigarettes. Aware of the dangers of smoking, not all smokers are able to abandon their health-debilitating habits. Tools to help overcome addiction have been around for a long time. But there is no panacea. And harmless means, too. From an electronic cigarette containing artificial nicotine can be a problem. Throat, lungs are subject to the effects of electronic vapors (smoking), the aftereffect is already visible. Persecution - a frequent reaction. Refuse from "electronics" for a while - check cigarettes for allergenicity.

All these allergens can complicate life: sore throat - a painful condition, sometimes leading to nervous disorders.

Reflux esophagitis. A disease with a complex name is caused by insufficiency of the sphincters (valves) of the digestive system. We are talking about two valves: at the entrance to the stomach from the esophagus and at the border of the stomach and duodenum. The first sphincter, cardia (name - from the proximity of the cardiac region), the second - pylorus. The digestive tract varies in acidity. The esophagus is slightly alkaline, the stomach is strongly acidic. The innervation of the esophagus is such that sensations from disturbances along its entire length (of any of the sites) are echoed in the throat. It works poorly, the esophageal sphincter near the stomach does not close - the acid content is inevitably thrown into the adjacent part of the esophagus. The reaction of mixing acid and alkali irritates the lining of the esophagus. The throat reacts with tickling, burning. Additionally, acidic burping is possible.

Violations in the cardia are not autonomous - the symptom is secondary. Primary - non-closure of the pylorus, sphincter at the exit from the stomach. The scheme is the same: the stomach is “acidic”, the duodenum is strongly alkaline. The pylorus is sluggish, it does not close qualitatively, when there is food in the stomach, a storm will be formed from an acid-base mixture. Alkali gets into the stomach, irritating it, acid - into the duodenum, the mucous membrane of which will also suffer. The aggressive effect of substances uncharacteristic of the gastrointestinal tract corrodes and ulcerates the mucous membranes. Reflex irritation is transmitted to the upper stomach, cardiac sphincter. He cannot fully close, along the chain of violation they go higher. The person feels them both a gullet and a throat.

Irritated throat syndrome. The throat can irritate not only aloud, in a voice. He has an internal irritation called the syndrome by doctors. Syndrome appears, as the first manifestation, symptom, catarrhal disease. In children, perspiration is preceded by characteristic childhood diseases: from relatively “light” chickenpox to formidable diphtheria.

With ailments accompanied by fever, the syndrome lasts the first days. Unpleasantly tickles in the throat, and I want to cough. Then the symptom recedes, if the cause is not in the nasopharynx. When the ticking dragged on, no other symptoms join, options are possible. An irritated throat may indicate:

  • Neurological disorders (neurosis),
  • Chronic tonsillitis.

The latter can be disguised as ARI, having an allergic etiology, and vice versa. The condition resembles the symptoms of a cold, it can continue, but not always.

Thyroid problems. The thyroid gland with impaired function or organic changes is reflected in the patient's sensations. Diseases of the endocrine system are a dangerous blow to health, so frequent tickling is considered a trifle - a mistake. Visit a doctor, if necessary, he examines the thyroid gland, excludes or confirms the pathology.

Heart diseases. Malfunctions in the work of the heart: heart failure, an increase in the departments of the heart, cause reflex perspiration and coughing. Common name: "heart cough." The relationship between the heart and the throat is salvage in the event of a malfunction in the heart. Cough stimulates the heart muscle, this allows it to hold out until the arrival of health workers (if necessary).

Particular attention to babies. The child constantly coughs, as if tickling in the throat, it is difficult to explain the sensations to him: it is small. This may be a manifestation of:

  • Reflux esophagitis,
  • Neurological disorders
  • Helminthiasis (infection with roundworms, mainly),
  • Enlarged adenoids,
  • Sinusitis
  • Pharyngitis
  • Sinusitis
  • Allergies
  • Pulmonary failure
  • Heart disease
  • Inflammation of the lymph nodes.

Refer to the pediatrician: according to the combination of symptoms and examination results, he will find the cause.

A person chooses a profession based on interests, talent, health. If a teenager suffering from tonsillitis understands that his vocation is a teacher, he is unlikely to mentally connect the disease and his future specialty. The load on the speech apparatus of teachers is great. Even a completely healthy person will quickly feel it. Having a chronicle is at risk. Commitment, transient or constant hoarseness of voice, professional ailments of a number of specialties:

  • Teacher,
  • Lecturer,
  • Educator
  • Event Organizer
  • Toastmaster
  • Singer,
  • Head (reading reports, holding meetings, meetings, planning meetings),
  • Speaker,
  • Reader.

All professions that require speaking a lot, clearly, loudly and for a long time are a risk for the vocal apparatus. Their representatives naturally suffer from death.

The same feeling arises even for those with some “silent” professions. People working in dusty conditions or experiencing the effects of chemical and other irritants suffer from it. There are specific occupational risk factors.

rinse with soda. This starts working the energy center of vishudha. It is located in the throat part. Everything is normal.

For 2 months now I have been tormented with a throat, it seems to be annoyed, it will pass, it will reappear, and this happens from wounded sides. Was at 3 ENTs, all like olin say they are healthy. But there is discomfort! Often I go grunting my throats, as if something was piling up there. what to do then? Go to the 4th laura?
The lymph nodes under the jaw are slightly enlarged closer to the neck, I don’t feel them especially if I tilt my head to the sides. Passed on one side, climbed out on the other side
Maybe someone had that?

Last year I had the same sore throat, went through all ENTs for insurance, inhaled, handed in my throat, checked my bristles, nothing helped and the doctors unanimously said that they couldn’t see anything, and I felt every day in the evening that the throat is torn with pain. In short, I was tormented and tormented my domestic, until I got to Laura in the American center. He also didn’t see anything of this, but gave simple advice: always carry highly carbonated mineral water in a bottle, and as soon as you feel the urge to drink in small sips. Imagine the discomfort subsided after a couple of days, then I still drank water for another four months. And everything is gone.

ENT does not see - the process is deeper than the submucosal layer.
Minvoda helps - a deficiency of minerals and other ions.
Lymph nodes may not be lymph nodes, but buboes and analogues (glanders, tularemia, etc.), suppurating hematomas, delimited hematomas.
The source that supports the process can be in the roots of the teeth, ears, base of the skull, fiber, pillow, food, kisses, trash can, etc.

Yes, I already have the same cloud of time
