Feeling ofclearing throat

Hello Doc, The previous night as I was eating cucumber, I suddenly felt that I need to clear my throat or something stuck. It still exists even now. I drank hot water, but still I have that feeling that I need to clear it. I also have cold from past few days. Could it be mucus ? What should be done to get rid off this feeling?

The allergies with secondary nasal infection have increased sino-nasal secretions which are flowing back down the throat. This has inflamed the throat mucosa resulting in nodular swellings in throat which gives you this irritating sensation of something stuck in throat. Drop into my clinic for a proper clinical evaluation and investigation to confirm the diagnosis and then manage the condition appropriately.
