In brief: Treatment...

There are treatments for post-nasal drip including prescription nasal sprays.
Treatment does depend on the etiology of the post-nasal drip (ex. Allergies, post-cold, etc.) your doctor can treat this depending on the cause. Sometimes, it is a self-limiting process so it may resolve on its own in a few days. See your doctor if it doesn't resolve in a few days.

In brief: Chronic rhinitis

A very common condition.
One should maximize treatment with antihistamines(pill ie Claritin or nasal spray) and/or nasal steroids. I tell my patients to irrigate nasal passages with saline on a regular basis. One would worry about environmental allergies, so a referral to an allergist may be needed.
