See MD: See an ear nose and throat specialist to see what can be done about treating you to reduce the cause of the mucous buildup. If it is allergy related, you can also consult with an allergist.

See an ENT doctor: I would visit with a specialist on that, or at least start with your primary care doctor. They can determine if your soft palate is too large. They may be able to assist you with the thick mucus as well. Please see the doctor.
