The symptoms you are having is due to a condition called post nasal drip. It is the drainage of secretions from the nose or sinuses down the back of the throat. Its most common causes are: Flu, allergies,viral
infections,Sinus infection or sinusitis
. It is usually caused by an underlying rhinitis (inflammation of lining of the inside of your nose) and/or sinusitis (inflammation of the sinus cavities within the facial bones that surround your nose).Antihistamines
and decongestants, cromolyn and steroid (cortisone
type) nasal sprays and other forms of steroids will provide dramatic relief.Antibiotics may be required accordingly.
Other treatments include nasal irrigation, in which the nasal cavity is flushed out, clearing the airways and sinuses. These usually brings immediate relief. If you feel major discomfort, then you need to go to ER for nasal irrigation & other prescription medications.
