I usually have allergies in the spring (pollen, hay fever, etc.) But all through the summer, I've been having sudden extremely itchy throat. When I try to use my tongue to relieve the itching, I can feel the itching in my ear and sometimes my nose. The itching is very bad at first, but after a minute it subsides but doesn't totally go away until about half an hour later. This does not sound to me as my usual allergies. Usually, I just have a constantly mild itchy or sore throat. I don't know if the pollen was just extremely bad this year... Any ideas?
