I started with a sore throat and now my mouth will not stop

Customer Question

I started with a sore throat and now my mouth will not stop watering, constantly need to swallow every few seconds, was unable to sleep last night because of it
JA: How long have you been dealing with this? Do you have a cough?
Customer: No cough and the sore throat started two days ago and I just noticed the watering last night
JA: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?
Customer: not really, I have had a history of throat issues that when my doctor checked, he said they were allergies but I usually don't get the watery mouth, that is once in awhile and I just want to know how to dry it up
JA: OK. Got it. I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully-refundable deposit now. While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the Doctor about your situation and then connect you two.

This is Dr. Bonilla, experienced in Internal Medicine, Pulmonary and Critical Care.

I understand your concerns. The problem you described is most likely caused by allergic rhinitis causing post nasal drip. You can use an over the counter intranasal steroid twice a day to decreased the sensation. The symptoms should improved in 3-5 days. If the symptoms persist you should follow with your PCP. Let me know if you have any other questions.
