Irritation in the back of the throat

Patient: For about three days it feels like i have something like a hair in my throat and i have tried to gargle it out and everything. should i be concerned?

 

 

Doctor: The irritation in your throat could be the result of a viral flu or post nasal drip. This should resolve on its own with in 7-10 days and no treatment is required. Gargles with warm saline and soothing logenzes will help.
