What is Post Nasal Drip? (Upper airway Cough Syndrome)

Mucusglands in the nose and throat produce mucus to:

Keep the nasal membranes moist and clean

Trap and clear inhaled foreign matter

Humidify inhaled air

Fight infection

Mucusis usually swallowed unconsciously - but when it thickens, it causes irritation and swallowing problems.

Post nasal drip is an accumulation or thickening of the mucus - a condition due tomucus production over the normal daily amount of1-2 quarts ( or an inability to clear produced mucus) , which gives one the sensation of dripping down the back of the throat with its inherent irritations.
