Post-nasal drip is the feeling that mucus from the nose and throat is building up in the back of your nose. This is caused when the mucus is excessively thick and not being naturally swallowed, usually because of some form of infection or throat muscle and swallowing disorder.
Whether you are experiencing post-nasal drip from allergies, a cold, pregnancy, dry air, or hormonal changes, post-nasal drip can cause a sore, irritated throat. The abnormal amount of secretion can cause the tonsils and other areas of the throat to swell, even if there isn’t an infection.
If your symptoms of post-nasal drip persist, contact Dr. Miya or Dr. Torchinsky immediately and schedule a consultation to find the correct treatment for you.
