Well I have chronic sinusitus, I dont breathe through my mouth, however I do burp a lot and it's because i keep having to swallow all the mucous that goes down my throat(can happen if you have a bad cold too). It really sucks, I keep drinking water because I find that it helps the mucous to go down better than just swallowing, and cuts down the burping. So drink a lot of water
