Neverending violent and itchy cough

Hello,

I am a 22 year old male, and I have been having a recurring problem that seems to be really annoying the heck out of me. I have had a sore throat when I wake up in the morning, and it usually goes away but the itchy part of it stays all day... and it keeps on making me cough violently as if I am going to throw up. The coughing lasts all day. I have mucus coming up when I have the violent coughs. Last time I had this problem, it lasted a month and it slowly went away.. I can't sleep because of this itchy throat, the coughing keeps me awake all night.

Any help or guesses on what this could possibly be would be appreciated..

Thank you

HI and thanks for using the forum.

Since this has been going on for a while now, you should probably see your doctor about this.  You could have something like a post nasal drip that is irritating your throat.  Also, this could be allergy related.  You should have this checked out.  Good luck.
