The last couple of months, I've had post nasal drip, where it's been dripping down to my throat. Is this allergies or a sinus infection?
Either or both: A more detailed history and response to specific treatments can provide clues. A test for allergies can help but doesn't rule out a sinus infection or non allergic causes.
