Brief Answer:
This is a normal phenomenon - no need for medicines

Detailed Answer:
Hi...This is normal phenomenon. No need for any medicines.

As such excessive drooling can occur in kids with developmental disability, I just wanted to make sure that everything was normal.

I wish your kid a bright future. If you need any future medical consultation and suggestions, I will be glad to help. You can approach me at the following link.
