Please get an X ray PNS water's view done as you are describing a symptom known as post nasal drip for which cause can lie in nose or sinuses. If some finding is there in X ray, you may need a CT scan PNS. You can use mucolytics, a course of antibiotics and nasal decongestants along with lots of steam inhalation. Regards
