Is it normal to clear your throat while you have post nasal drip? Coughing isn't as helpful as throat clearing for me not at all.

Is it normal to clear your throat while you have post nasal drip? Coughing isn't as helpful as throat clearing for me not at all.

Definitely!!!: These are mucus draining the back of your throat, triggering you to clear your throat and initiate a cough to try to get rid of the mucus behind.At times to the point of choking and gagging your head off- your eyes about to pop!take care of the main problem which is allergic rhinitis with any allergy meds- claritin, zyrtec , Allegra etc brand or generic and a topical nasal spray.See md if no better. ...Read more

I have chronic throat-clearing. It happens throughout the day but worsens after I eat- doesn't matter what I eat. How do I get rid of this/what is it?

If progressive...: Exposure of the vocal cords to stomach acid & pepsin will result in inflammation of the vocal cords (as is also often seen with acid regurgitation). Acute laryngitis may result, but watch out for chronic hoarseness, throat clearing, airway spasms, bronchitis, an asthma-type presentation, and even a higher risk of throat cancer. Impedance pH testing with a symptom diary can best characterize this. ...Read more

Several: The smoking is an irritant. It can increase secretions. It can cause acid reflux. It can cause swelling of the throat and lymph nodes around it. It stimulates the gag reflex. It took me years to stop. Be kind. Patches seem to work since they don't jerk your nicotine level up and down. Keep using them for 2+ months. Have a doctor look at his throat if it gets worse or does't improve. ...Read more

Can post nasal drip cause asthma? Secondly, can it cause chronic need for throat clearing? Thanks

Can post nasal drip cause asthma? Secondly, can it cause chronic need for throat clearing?
Thanks

No and yes: A post nasal drip will not cause asthma but it certainly could cause you to have to clear your throat. Everyone has a post nasal drip and it is only a problem when there is a change in either the quality or the quantity of the mucus. Once the cause of the change in mucus is treated the sensation of a post nasal drip should improve. ...Read more

My almost 7 yo son has constant sniffing, throat clearing, and mouth stretching. His pedi  has told me not to worry but its been over 6 months?

Could be allergies: Are causing his nasal drainage (which causes throat clearing). Environmental allergens (molds & dust are noticable during winter months, and you've seen his symptoms for 6 months), but foods can also cause similar symptoms. I often recommend the airfree purifier to eliminate mold, homeopathic mold and dust remedies, and if foods are the problem, eliminate wheat and dairy for 2 weeks then challenge. ...Read more

Throat Clearing: Often this is due to thick mucus that accumulates in the lower throat. Green tea with lemon may help. Is there a sinus with postnasal drip? Ask your doctor about using Clear.ease Lozenges - these are the papain/bromelain enzymes you melt in your mouth between cheek and gums to thin the mucus. ...Read more
