Re: does Broncitis cause mucus ?

Hello
Sounds like you have post nasal drip which is the bain of most drs lives as it can be difficult to control. Its likely that it is caused by an allergy to something. Do you find that it is worse first thing in the morning? If so you could be allergic to house dust mite, quite a common allergy. Try getting protective covers for your pillows and matteress. Also if you have feather bedding then you could try changing it for hypoallergenic duvet and pillows.
If that doesn't help it may be worth a trip to your drs or the pharmacist, then you could try a mild antihistamine to see if that helps.
Also, maybe excessive saline flushing could be irritating the mucus membranes in your nasal passages, unlikely tho?
Love
Blue
