excess phlegm in the morning

My husband who is 25 wakes up every morning and has to hack or throw up mucus. He says it feels like a lump at the back of his throat and makes him gag. Does anyone know of some way to lessen the phlegm or anything to help?

Re: excess phlegm in the morning

Everettsmama, Hi. my hubby has this condition ongoing for a decade at least. His remedy is, his fav, cough up a lung lol. Use benedryl or mucinex. His fave works the best for him. I perfer not to listen to him. Take care. Oh if he smokes try to see if he can stop. My hubby (67) is on inhalers and a nebulizer. Coughs thru the day, bad. No one should go thru this. We are quitting next week 16th.
wish us luck. Also it can be dry air. A humidfyer would help.

Has he been tested for allergies? I just tested allergic for molds after about a year of this weird post nasal drip thing happening during the night as well as eustachian tube dysfunction. Apparently sleeping with my window open at night is a no-no -- mold spores come out at night and float right in.

Maybe try a HEPA filter, too? I have ordered one to give it a go.
