Hi
Welcome to Healthcaremagic Forum
There are many reasons for this like gum disease, enlarged tonsils, habitual sleeping with mouth open, nasal block due to sinusitis, allergy or polyp, et c.
Visit an ENT specialist to find the cause so you can be helped.

Dentist Dr. Khushboo Bhatia's  Response
Drooling in your sleep, also known as sialorrhea, is caused by saliva that builds up in the mouth.
1. Sleep on your back instead of on your side or stomach. When you sleep on your side or stomach, drool can easily seep out of your mouth onto the pillow. Sleeping on your back will prevent this from happening.
2 Treat any nasal obstructions or allergies that cause you to sleep with your mouth open. Drooling generally happens to people who sleep with their mouth open. This can indicate a respiratory disorder.
3 Consult with your doctor about any medications you are taking. Certain medicines can cause drooling by excess saliva production. Talk to your doctor to see if there are alternative medicines you can take instead.
4 Treat any tooth or gum infections. Dental infections trigger excessive saliva production while sleeping.

My 6 year old daughter sweats excessively while sleeping. There have been nights where she fell asleep in my bed and after we moved her to her bed, we have had to change the sheets of my bed before we could go to sleep. I keep the ceiling fan in her room turned on and only cover her with a sheet and small blanket. She sleeps in a thin tank top. Her pediatrician told me to cut back on her caffeine intake, however she only drinks the occasional glass of Ice T when we go out to eat, or the occasional glass of Chocolate Milk. She has never been allowed to drink caffeinated soft drinks and she doesn t eat a lot of chocolate either. Is this something that she will out grow, or is it a sign of something else?

My girlfriend periodically has excessive amounts of saliva. So much so that she has to spit almost constantly when it happens and it sometimes makes her feel like she s going to vomit. Only when it s really bad does she feel like she s going to vomit, and the nausea is accompanied by involuntary, large burps. To my knowledge, there s nothing she s taken that s made it go away other than laying a towel down until she falls asleep. Upon waking, it s usually gone away. We ve only tried tums so far, under the assumption it may be heartburn, though she has no other symptoms when it comes about related to heartburn. The only other odd thing I could add is that she doesn t typically burp. Not the way I do at least. It s more like an involuntary growling noise from her throat while laying in a certain position.

Dear Dr, I am 30 years Male. I had productive cough in morning for last 2 months and I was suffering from sinusitis also. The sputum was green. Now the cough is gone and only sinusitis remains, no that much sputum. I done a chest x-ray last week which came normal. However doctor told a elevation in Diaphragm and enlagement of heart. What will be the reason of this?. Active Pulmonoray TB not there, but will it be Miliary TB symptom or Amoebic Liver Abscess or anything else?? Please advice me for the next step

About a month ago I heard a loud noise in my right ear and got dizzy. Then two weeks later I had upper respiratory and my right ear looked irritated. I was prescribed z pack. Then two weeks after that I felt I couldnt swallow, my skin on my neck was stretching, pressure in my face, and dizzy. I went back to the doctor and he said both ears were irritated and I probably had sinus infection, even though I had no mucus. He prescribed amoxicillin and advil congestion relief. The pressure in my head at times was uncomfortable to a point where I had to look in the mirror and make sure my face was not disformed. I went back a few days, even though the other symptoms went away and he ordered an MRI. All came back normal except for a maxillary mucus retention cyst in my right sinus. The doctor said it was very small and should not be causing all this. Last night I went to the er because, the pressure in my nose for the past two days makes me feel as if I am not able to breathe. My right ear and head are numb when I feel the pressure in my right nostril. No matter what I take no mucus or flem is coming out and I get panicky when I feel the pressure and numbness. I have to say the pressure is not as intense these past few days as it was last week but still uncomfortable and scary. The ER doctor just ordered claritin but when I called my doctor that said it would dry me up more and he gave me sudafed which I am now taking. also was on lexapro (2,5mg) for a few years and took a year or so to wean off it correctly. I have been off of it for over two months. Could this be related? I have an appointment with an ENT this week.
