Sticky Mucus Problem

When I had a bad flare up with a cold in May I had problems with thick sticky mucus that settled in my chest and throat. I had a really hard time trying to cough it up. My asthma has been flaring up this summer because of allergies. Some days are better than others. The sticky mucus is back again. I had an ENT say that I don't have post nasal drip. I use avamys nasal spray for allergic rhinitis. The mucus starts in my throat and I am unable to clear it away. Eventually it settles into my chest triggering an asthma attack. Is this mucus because of my allergies? I seem to have it mildly most of the time. Is it just part of asthma? Is there any way to get rid of it? Albuterol helps when it triggers my asthma but the mucus never goes away completely. I also take symbicort.
