Hello,
Thanks for putting up your question on Just Answer, and requesting me personally to answer it.
Your problem is due to excess of saliva. Excess saliva could be because of:
1. Excess production of saliva: This is called as sialorrhoea. Salivary secretion can be reduced by certain types of medication, like anti-histaminic drugs. However, the cause for the excess production of saliva must be found out first. In most cases saliva production increases when there is a foreign body in the oral cavity. It can also increase in some salivary gland diseases and as a side effect of some medications. I suggest you see a dentist or a physician ASAP, so that you can get a prescription to reduce your salivary secretions. If your insurance situation does not allow you to immediately do so, then you can purchase any OTC anti-allergic drug, it will have the same effect.
2. Poor muscular control: Your salivary production may be within normal limits, but your muscle tone might be less than adequate.Once your dentist gives you a clean bill of health as fas as saliva volume goes, then you can consult a speech therapist for improving your muscle tone.
Hope this answers your question. Feel free to contact me again for more information.
Please leave a positive rating if my answer has helped you. I do not get credit for it otherwise!
Regards,
Dr Behere

I can go as far as to say it could have resulted in saving my sons life and our entire family now knows what bipolar is and how to assist and understand my most wonderful son, brother and friend to all who loves him dearly. Thank you very much

Suggested diagnosis was what I hoped and will take this info to my doctor's appointment next week.
I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.

John and StefanieTucson, AZ

I have been dealing with an extremely serious health crisis for over three years, and one your physicians asked me more questions, gave me more answers and encouragement than a dozen different doctors who have been treating me!!
