10 Dry Mouth Symptoms

Dry Throat

In most cases, dry mouth is usually followed by a scratchy and dry throat. The main cause of this condition is the insufficient production of saliva, and it also hurts the throat as well. The sign can be seen more often in those people who suffer from dehydration or breathe with their mouths. Sucking or chewing sugar-free candies or gum would help with your saliva production and soothe your throat. Also, consider drinking some soothing beverages like water or tea to calm your scratchy throat. However, keep in mind that these are just temporary solutions, and treatments for the underlying cause are still necessary. [2]
