Hi, you have post nasal drip and the cause can be an infection in the sinuses. The problem usually gets solved by steam inhalation, mucolytics, nasal decongestants. If it does not gets resolved, CT PNS should be done and the status of osteomeatal complex is to be visualized. Please get in touch with an ENT in case the problem does not resolve. Regards
