How to Get Rid of Post-Nasal Drip
|By Dr. Harold Katz - Bad Breath Expert|
Post-nasal drip (PSD) is described as the excessive mucus that runs down the back of the nose and into the throat. There are many issues that are known to cause post-nasal drip and include but are not limited to allergies, colds, influenza, sinus infections, and sinusitis. Other issues that may cause post-nasal drip include anatomical abnormalities (ex: deviated septum), cold temperatures, extremely dry air, spicy foods and milk products. The inhalation of fumes from chemicals, cleaning products, perfumes, and smoke may also cause post-nasal drip.

Post-nasal Drip Symptoms
The primary symptoms of post-nasal drip include a continual feeling of mucus in the throat and the urge to constantly clear the throat. Other symptoms of post-nasal drip are a sore throat, hoarseness, or a chronic cough. Post-nasal drip can even lead to infections of the Eustachian tube, which is the tube that connects the back of the nose to the middle ear and infections of the sinus passages due to mucus blockage.

How to get rid of Post-nasal Drip
There are several ways to get rid of post-nasal drip that include medications and over-the-counter products. Getting rid of post-nasal drip with medication requires antibiotics, which ultimately treats bacterial infections that result from post-nasal drip, but not the actual cause of PSD. The use of medications that thin mucus such as Mucinex, decongestants, antihistamines such as Allegra, and steroid nasal sprays, or steroid medications can treat the side-effects of post-nasal drip when it is caused by sinusitis, viral infection, or allergies. These treatments can have side effects such as dizziness and drowsiness. However, TheraBreath® provides an alternative method to get rid of post-nasal drip that is free from side effects.
