Suggest treatment for post nasal discharge

Posted on Sat, 3 Jan 2015 in Ear, Nose and Throat Problems
Question: Hello Doctor,

I had a cold last week and I am recovering from it. But I feel like there is phelgm or mucus stuck in my throat. It's hard to get it out and feels like there's something stuck in my throat. This morning I woke up like I wanted to vomit. I feel good now but there's still phlegm in my chest or throat. What can this be. Does it go away by itself? Thanks
