Post Nasal Drip

 (Upper airway Cough Syndrome)

Mucus glands 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

Mucus is 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 to mucus production over the normal daily amount of 1-2 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.
