Dry Throat and Cough

I had strep throat about 4 weeks ago.  After taking antibiotics, I was okay.  Immediately after I came down with a cold of some sort, My throat was constantly dry, and now I always have this sticky phlegm at the back of my throat? What could this be? Post nasal drip?

It sounds a lot like what I have and you may have allergies.

my guess would be an opportunistic virus that attacked while your body was on anti-bs for the strep.
