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 moreSee 1 more doctor answer

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

Best thing to do is live a healthy life style and if problem persists, see your doc. ...Read more

Bleeding from hemorrhoids is also common. The problem is, there are other less typical causes and some can be dangerous.

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. If concerned, see MD for evaluation. ...Read more

Prevention: Prevent decay- decay can become huge problem when you have dry mouth. I put my pts. 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 moreSee 1 more doctor answer
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
