I am 22 years old male and I have a lot of extra saliva I have to spit what can be causing this?

Don't spit: Spitting is a habit not a necessity. Swallowing works just as well. As you have created a habit of spitting you also increase your saliva flow. As you decrease your spitting your saliva flow will adjust, and people around you will be a lot more comfortable. ...Read more

I am 19 years old and every time i get a sore throat, i produce excess saliva. Why and how can I prevent this? My family members do not get this.

Swallowing problem: I can't be specific without examing you, but my guess is that your sore throat is associated with swelling inthe back of your throat. The swelling decreases how quickly you can swallow the saliva that you are producing. I doubt that you are actually producing more saliva-but rather, not swallowing it as easily as normal. ...Read more

Why do i have too much saliva and a small appetite,?

Why do i have too much saliva and a small appetite,?

Not necessarily rela (carisoprodol): the amount of saliva and the size of one's appetite are not necessarily related. Younger individuals tend to produce more saliva than the elderly. Many factors frame a person's appetite. As long as one is getting adequate vitamins, nutrients and calories, a small appetite may be WNL. If a small appetite is causing health issues first rule out the presence of a parasite. ...Read more

Most common causes:: Bleeding from a fissure (tear) when passing a hard stool is common, and can be avoided by avoiding constipation (lots of fluids and fiber!). Bleeding from hemorrhoids is also common. The problem is, there are other less typical causes and some can be dangerous. This warrants a visit to your primary care doctor to help control your symptoms - and assess your risk for more serious conditions. ...Read more

See MD: Causes of saliva overproduction include pregnancy, excessive starch intake, gastroesophageal reflux disease, pancreatitis, liver disease, serotonin syndrome, oral ulcers, and oral infections. Treatment should be directed toward the underlying cause. Some patients find relief with use of mouthwash and tooth brushing, which might have a drying effect.

I have been told that I have dry mouth due to shrunken salivary glands. What can I do for either situation?

On a high flouride toothpaste like prevident, recommend stimulating saliva with sugar free candy or gum, even better when sweetened with xylitol, plenty of water. Also i like the saliva replacement mouth spray. Biotine and xlear have good products for dry mouth. Xlear also has a gel to spread around for comfort. ...Read more

I have constant reflux, and take omeprazole. What can I use to treat my breathe. After I eat/drink anything i have a constant taste of what I had. ?

Breath: Make sure you're brushing your tongue and gums. Also, really gargle well (I find peroxide and water mixed in equal portions) twice daily. See the dentist to check for tooth decay which can lead to bad breath. Reflux can cause tooth decay. An "alternative" treatment would be something called activated charcoal. ...Read more

If : If you haven't already done so, i would seek out a good local ENT in your area for a thorough history and exam that could include nasal endoscopy to evaluate for possible sinus origin, indirect mirror or flexible scope exam of your throat, etc. Depending on findings, you may need ct imaging of your sinuses, in the mean time, if your mucous is thick and sticky, Mucinex (guaifenesin) (otc) is a safe medication that can help thin the mucous so it is more easily transported through your upper nasal and sinus passages. Try to drink enough water to stay well hydrated.Gargling with salt water also may help break up some of the phlegm. If you are a smoker this is counterproductive as it incites an inflammatory mucosal response and stimulates more mucous production. ...Read more
