Hi, thanks for using healthcare magic

The most common reason for mucus in the throat is post nasal drip due to allergic sinusitis or allergic rhinitis.
Treatment involves avoiding the allergen that is causing the reaction, if that is possible. In addition the use of nasal sprays and antihistamines would also be helpful.

You may need a prescription for the nasal spray.

I hope this helps

Pulmonologist Dr. Gyanshankar Mishra's  Response
You need to visit a Pulmonologist/ chest physician. You seem to be suffering from acid reflux disease and GERD associated phlegm production. Its important to stop all the spicy diet. Do not stay hungry for more than 4 hours. Take proper breakfast at times. Also evaluation investigations include chest xray, pulmonary function test and sputum examination. A simple anti acidity medication like Tb. PAN-D can be taken by you daily before breakfast for 15 days. Also eat small frequent meals.
Hope this helps.

Thanks for posting your query.
You are most likely suffering from acute bacterial pharyngitis along with lower respiratory tract involvement.
Presence of phlegm and respiratory distress suggests the diagnosis.
You should consult with internal medicine specialist and ENT surgeon simultaneously and should go for thorough check up.
You should go for complete hemogram, throat swab culture & sensitivity and chest x ray.
You should take complete antibiotic therapy, mucolytics and decongestants.
You should avoid oily foods and cold drinks.
You should also perform gargles three times in day; a glass of luke warm water with a pinch of salt.
Take care,
Dr. Mayank Bhargava
