Tickling in throat!
So Initially i had sputum culture which showed Klebsiella pneumoniae which was sensitive to all the antibiotics. I had cough with phlegm a lot, then i was asked for a pft which showed early airway obstruction, showed pulmonogist she said its normal, I was put on ceftum 500 twice a day for 5 days and decet od due to high esionophils fr 21 days. After 5 days of ceftum, cough reduced but not completely then i was prescribed ab Phylline and bilastine tablets for 10 days. Right now cough with phlegm has reduced a lot, but many times i have to clear throat due to phlegm, some hoarseness and also dry cough due to ticklish feeling in the throat! I did a pft yesterday which was completely normal, no obstruction or anything. Doctor said its allergy as my ige was 440+ and also my mother is asthmatic... i take prulastin tablet but still that ticklish feeling down the throat stays... i do inhale steam, what to do... should i check again with ent? And is the klebsiella gone after the course?
