Customer Question

I have been diagnosed with Sjogrens Syndrome, but have a problem with drooling.I have a very dry mouth, so do not understand why I drool.Have researched salivary glands, but no answer-also difficulty chewing an swallowing ...when I chew food the saliva runs down my chin and my nose runs into my mouth. Therefore I have pretty much put myself on a soft diet. Hope you have an answer Thank You!!
