Not likely.: Post nasal drip likely comes from the back of your nose and drips down and is usually coughed out or swallowed down your esophagus. If you get a chest cold, the inflammation comes first and then congestion from mucus production. This is then coughed out or blown out if in your nose.

May want to use Robitussin-DM or Mucinex dm which don't have the decongestant. Antihistamine like zyrtec (cetirizine) will help stop runny nose. Possible drowsiness with these meds. ...Read more

OTC nasal steroid sprays should help. See PCP or allergist. ...Read more
I have an untreated deviated septum and post nasal drip has been aggravating my lungs. And causing dark mucus with blood to come up randomly. Why?
Moisture is needed: Everyone has mucous in back of nose. If you are bothered by it it is because it is too thick (dry). Also dry nose will cause it to bleed. Deviated septum may cause turbulent airflow and worsen dryness. Hydrate, use humidifier, nasal saline spray, and you may try Guaifenesin 1200 mg twice daily to take with food and glass of water. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
