How to get rid of an itchy throat??? It is sooo annoying!!!

I've gargled with listerine that seems to help for awhile.

Any other suggestions?

  • Try sniffing up warm salt (non-iodized) water and spitting it out. I have been using a Neti-pot (you can get them in the grocery store or pharmacy) and the salt/baking soda mix that comes with it. You tilt your head over the sink and pour the solution in one nostril and let it come out of the other, then change nostrils. Then gargle with warm salt water. This washes out a lot of the allergy-causing substances and helps with the post-nasal drip, both of which could be irritating your throat.
