Hello

Thanks for writing to H.C.M. for your query.

I have gone through your query regaring dry mouth off and on and you have also told about sneezing and off and on redness in throat.

Considering your symptoms it appears as most likely you are suffering from allergic rhinopharyngitis but the other possibilities are-

(a) Early sinusitis.

(b) Recurrent Pharyngitis with ? diabetes.

Therefore you are advice for these investigations-

(1) Culture and sensitivity of throat swab.

(2) C.T.scan of paranasal sinuses.

(3) Blood- CBC, ESR, blood sugar (F. & P.P.)

By these investigations we may reach to correct diagnosis which may be accordingly pan for treatment.

Regards.
