why is my throat dry and scratchy?

Many years ago, I began to have a continuously scratchy, dry throat. It hurt and bothered me. Eventually the Dr. & I figured out I had allergies. Reactine helped and from then on, I take it most of the year.
Since then I've noticed lately (last few weeks) that my throat is dry, sore and scratchy in spite of the reactine. What could the reason be?
I'm taking no-name reactine so I am wondering if maybe this is playing a role, although it's the same chemical as the brand name and the some stuff I usually take, and I've taken several boxes' worth since this started. Could this be it? Or do I need to up the dose on my own?
Maybe it's some other reason. Am I sick? I don't have any other symptoms. My life is stressful, so there's that. I've never smoked.
do you have any advice?
