February 27, 2018 14:33
Your throat can feel dry for a variety of reasons. If you have dry throat but not any other symptoms, it may be because the air in your environment is too dry and it irritates the mucous membrane of your throat. Most commonly, though, dry throat is caused by upper respiratory tract infections, such as the common cold, and you start to feel better once the infection is gone. Some factors, such as smoking and environmental air pollutants, can aggravate dry throat. It can be relieved with home remedies, including gargling with salt water and drinking warm liquids. If your throat continues to feel dry, and over-the-counter medicines and home remedies don’t help, you should see a doctor to find out what’s causing your dry throat.
