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.
