Brief Answer:
Post nasal drip

Detailed Answer:
Hi
Welcome to HealthcareMagic and thanks for putting up the query
You should use xylometazoline nasal drops three times a day and try a nasal douching.
If the secretions still don't get cleared, you should get an endoscopic examination of the nose and nasopharynx done to rule out any nasal pathology.
Any history of nasal blockage or congestion?
Any history of frequent nasal infections?
Follow up with the required information so that I can suggest you better.
Any further questions are always welcome.
Take care
Thanks and regards

Hi
Thanks for the information
You should get an endoscopic examination of the nose and nasopharynx done to rule out any nasal pathology. If that is not available, you should get a Ct scan paranasal sinuses done.
The secretions are usually due to sinus or nasal pathology. The management will depend on the reports.
You should use nasal spray. That will help you with your symptoms to some extent.
Any further questions are always welcome.
Take care
Thanks and regards

It is 4:25 am here and the XXXXXXX spray just hurts my throat! It felt like I got water in it and burns terrible! I did this three times. I also purchased medication with it. I will call my Dr. in the morning.
Thank you,
Michelle
