Hi Everyone, I have been having persistant sore throat that comes and goes for the last few months  with my allergies . I have been taking zyrtec  and it helps my nose allergies but not my sore throat . I have no fever. Does anyone know what I can do for my sore throat.? The last time I went to the dr  he checked my throat and I didnt have strep. I also lose my voice time to time.I would appreciate any help.

Do you have drainage that could be causing it?  Is it real dry in your house?  I'm just trying to think of a couple things.  Have you been back to see your doctor?
Good luck!

Do you take a contoller medication like Advair or Symbicort? Sometimes they can cause sore throast and hoarseness, particularly if you don't gargle well after taking them.

Hi kara487...I suffered with severe sore throat for months until I came of the symbicort.It gave me terrible thrush in the throat ....even when I gargled after each inhilation. I had nasal drip constantly which was so uncomfortable. Perhaps you should talk to the doc and see if you have the oral thrush or in fact are allegic to the meds you are using.I have a small dehumidifier that I use when weather gets wonders and seems to solve my throat problems...breathe well...grooveyxxx

Hi Karla, I have sore throats a lot of the times. The worst times are when I have post nasal drip. Contact your
doctor and see if he/her can give you something. For now try to suck on halls or anything that will relieve sore throat.
I unfortunately have to get 2 weekly allergy shots. So I know how much of a pain it is getting sore throats. Good luck..hugss..Lora
