May clear up: Many things can cause productive sputum and nasal drainage, including exposure to smoke or fumes, allergies and infections.

Likely a cold: Controversy exists about vitC supplements for a cold. Taking the suggested amount (and not more) is safe. Warning signs that should prompt one to see a physician are sudden worsening of the throat pain, enlarging lymph nodes, persistent fever, any resultant breathing difficulty, sinus pressure after 14 days that is not improving, and suddenly getting worse after a period of improvement. ...Read more

Throat, mouth so dry. I do leave the fan on at night, can that be the cause or am I not drinking enough water? I do have a history of post nasal drip

Mouth breathing: Mouth breathing can dry out your mouth, airway i. A dry environment. Illicit drugs, alcohol, many medications, and some medical conditions can lead to extreme dry mouth. Dehydration can cause you to be parched each morning, but not knowing what you drink or don't drink, I can not say if it is not enough. Do think about how much alcohol you are drinking, as that is a common problem at 24. ...Read more

Can post nasal drip cause dry mouth? My mouth has been pretty dry for over 24 hours, been clearing thick mucous from throat. Drinking plenty of water

Possibly: If the post-nasal drips are very salty, then you may end up with a sensation of dry throat like after swallowing a mouthful of seawater. On the other hand, your dry mouth may also be from nasal congestion leading to mouth breathing. You need to get checked out for possible sinus infection as well if the problem persists for more than 10 days or gets worse in the interim. ...Read more

I had a very acidic smoothie. It burned my throat. I used cough drops, tea & honey, and water to fix it. It seems to have caused a runny nose — I was fine before the drink, but now feel sick. Help!

Runny nose: I do not think the runny nose is due to the acidic smoothie. You may want to try a decongestant, if you do not have high blood pressure. You can also irrigate out the nose and this should help you. Good luck! Get plenty of rest. ...Read more

I have some mucus or postnasal drip in the back of my throat. No cough, no fever,  stuffy nose, but my throats feels irritated. Not sore because I eat and  drink just fine. What could be going on? I have a newborn so I don't want to be contagious.

Wear a mask: New throat pain can be from a strep throat infection (antibiotics are needed), a cold or influenza (antibiotics usually not used), or from some other cause such as allergies or irritants. Usually, a person sees the doctor if the sore throat is bothersome, recurrent, or doesn't go away quickly (mainly to check for strep throat). A newborn is vulnerable to catching other people's infections. ...Read more

Can I let my 7 months old son drink some water with ginger extract to warm his throat? He has a cold, cough and runny nose

Can I let my 7 months old son drink some water with ginger extract to warm his throat? He has a cold, cough and runny nose

Yes, qualified: If it doesn't taste too strong for you, the baby may not object. Ginger can be a very strong flavor that might not appeal if it is not dilute enough. Be sure he has enough vit d and k. In the winter 1, 000 units of vit d and 100 mcg of vit k2 may help his immune system, especially if temperature is subnormal. ...Read more

18mos baby has cough n runny nose. Can't drink every breastfeed n always cough at the start of breastfeed cos mucus at throat. What should I do?

See below: If no fever and no breathing problem other than congestion and runny nose, recommend saline nasal spray and start feed with clear liquids--as water, apple juice, pear juice, white grape juice--these will not thicken mucus. Then progress to breast feed, as milk makes mucus thicker. Vaporizer or humidifier will be helpful.

I think I may have a cold.  Stuffy nose and a sore throat.  I plan on drinking a bunch of beer tonight, would that be bad for the sore throat?

Not a good idea: Even at your age sleep apnea can occur and with already being stuffy alcohol is not a good idea. Generally we consider anything more than 2-3 beers/day associated with abuse. That is we consider it toxic. Intermittent binge drinking is considered even more toxic. ...Read more

I started with sore throat . Now I constantly clearing throat and mucus and coughing . Stuffy nose. When I drink tea or coffee seems to make worse?

Throat discomfort: Top diagnoses to think about this time of year would be strep throat, allergic sinusitis & post-nasal drip, all of which can be tied into each other. To help with symptoms, you can obtain an antihistamine like Allegra & pair it with a nasal steroid like Flonase, both are OTC. Gargle with Listerine. Plenty fluids. If you are having fevers and the mucus is yellow-green, see your doc for antibiotics. ...Read more
