Food allergies: Try looking into the idea that certain foods may be irritating yo your system, causing you to react with the chronic drip.

This may help.: Neti pots can
reduce nasal congestion. Mix ¼ tsp salt w 1 cup lukewarm water. More salt can also be used. Place solution in neti pot. Tilt head & pour solution into 1 nostril. Blow nose lightly & spit out any liquid that drains into throat. Repeat on other side. This can be done in the evening before you go to bed & again in the morning. Afrin is quite strong but can only be used briefly.

Need diagnosis: I truly enjoy answering questions on health tap. As an ENT I am impressed by the number of questions that focus on quick fixes for the person's symptoms. I can not emphasize enough the need for an accurate diagnosis. Most physicians treat diseases, not symptoms. Having said this, you need to rule out nasal allergy, sinusitis with or without nasal polyposis. Reflux is a remote possibility.
