Thanks for writing in.
The salty taste in your mouth can be due to several reasons which would need to be ruled out to start the correct treatment for you. Firstly, it can occur due to dehydration
. It is essential that you drink atleast 2-3 litres of water in a day. Lots of alcohol and caffeine can also cause dehydration. Try and avoid these.
Next, it can occur as a side effect of some medications. I would like to know if you are currently receiving any medication. In addition, it can occur due to a sinusitis
with a post nasal drip
. This is an inflammation of the sinuses and commonly causes a cold, headache etc. Further, it can be due to gastroesophageal reflux disease
I would suggest that you drink plenty of watre, steer clear of caffeine and alcohol and take tablet Prevacid OTC once a day for 1 week. Additionally, also see an ENT specialist
to get sinusitis ruled out.
I hope this helps.
