HI, thanks for using healthcare magic

It is possible that your symptoms are related to allergic rhinosinusitis. This is inflammation of the nasal passages and sinuses.

They most commonly occur together.

This would cause increased mucus production, nasal congestion, post nasal dripping (contributing to the mucus in your throat when you are talking).

Treatment would involve : (1)Avoiding the particular allergen , if it is known

(2)the use of topical nasal sprays such as nasonex, rhinocort, flonase, nasocort, avayms. You may need a prescription for these sprays

(3)oral antihistamines

I hope this helps
