Mucus flow

I have a peculiar problem. When I have common cold, mucus flows from nose to mouth and throat. It doesn't come out from nose. When this happens ther will be lot of irritation at the junction between nose and mouth. Pls let me know if this can be solved.

Re: Mucus flow

You can try a nasal lavage by using a neti pot.

Sudafed, which is a decongestant will help.

Drink enough water.

You could have allergies or a reactive system of your upper airways...kind of a double whammy.

Taking vitamins such as C, A, zinc could help.

When you do have a cold, you could take products such as Cold FX, echinacea or Cold Immune from Sisu.

Products that are expectorants will help. In the US, Mucinex is one.

I think we all have the same problem with colds.

It's all a matter of perspective!

Re: Mucus flow

I have the same problem. My salvation is Asterpro nose spray 2xd on each side. This is a RX. I,also,take musinex,1xd--and if I develop chest congestion I take benedryl to dry up my flow at night. I take robitussin DM for adults if I am tickling at night to help me sleep. I finally went to an allergist and he suggested the above treatment. You might check with your doctor if you have a heart condition before taking the above meds.
