Scratchy throat (1 day), sore throat (2 days), feels like

Patient : Scratchy throat (1 day), sore throat (2 days), feels like a hair on left side of throat (3 days). Been checking, saw nothing. Gargled with warm salty water yesterday. Saw a spot this morning in the back of throat. No pain, just a single white spot. At the time the "hair in left side of throat" sensation began, I also started having a general tickling in throat that causes a dry cough. I do tend to have seasonal allergies. My cough is wet only in the mornings when I first wake. It improves to a dry cough, but the tickle remains all day (as well as the feeling of a hair or something else being on the left side of throat). The "hair" and the general tickle started at the end of the sore throat and has gone on for 3 days.
