thick mucus, hard to swallow

I have thick, sticky mucus and it's hard to swallow, when I swallow it feels like my mucus is stuck in my throat, I was just wondering what this was? I think this is a catalyst to my bad breath as my saliva just seems to stay in my mouth unless I physically spit it out. Anyone know what this could be?

Re: thick mucus, hard to swallow

Hi there, how long have this problem been bothering you? If it's been getting worse or has bothered you daily for more than 3 months then maybe you should seek medical help.

It could be anything from allergies, post nasal drip or sinus infection... etc. Do you drink lots of water everyday? Bad breath is due to bad digestion/ problems with the digestive tract or poor dental hygience. Drink more plain water, it will help clear things and keep your mouth fresh.

Well, I ain't no doctor but hope this helps.
