I have post nasal drip following a throat infection and cold. How do I get rid of it?

Takes time. That is not unusual. Typically, it could take several weeks to resolve. Make sure that you are drinking plenty of fluids like water and you can take a mucous thinner which is called Guaifenesin to help break up the mucus. This is sold over-the-counter.

Well I just got over a sinus infection or a cold that lasted 24 hours. Now all thats left is a little bit of post nasal drip, small cough, and a dry throat. How do I get rid of this?

Simple OTC fix. Your symptoms of post-nasal drip can be relieved with a daily non-sedating anti-histamine (like claritin/zyrtec/allegra). Additional symptom relief can be found using nasal steroid sprays, such as Flonase allergy relief, also available OTC. Use 2 sprays intranasal daily, as needed. These treatments will also help with your cough, which is due to the post-nasal drip. Consult me for more details. Read more...
