Postnasal drip occurs when your throat becomes clogged with more mucus than usual and starts to drip down the back of your throat. You might experience a tickling sensation in the back of your throat. A chronic cough may develop as a result of postnasal drip. Your throat and nose have glands that are constantly producing mucus which causes this drip.
Nasal drainage, also referred to as postnasal drip, happens when mucus secretions flow down your throat. These secretions are frequently thicker than usual, which makes you aware of the extra mucus draining down your throat.
How can postnasal drip be prevented?
The balloon sinuplasty procedure, as offered by the American Sinus Institute, may be helpful when postnasal drip symptoms are severe and none of the previously stated treatments are effective in providing relief or resolving the health issue. AmericanSinus Institute specializes in balloon sinuplasty, serving patients in San Antonio and across Texas. Contact our board-certified physicians in Otolaryngology to learn how balloon sinuplasty can help relieve your sinus problems and deviated septum.
