This condition is known as Post nasal drip or Upper Airway Caugh Syndrome(UACS)
It happens when excessive mucous accumulate in throat. It is caused by sinusitis allergies other causes are laringo pharingial acid reflux or disorder of swallowing. It may present with caughing constant swallowing, runny nose chronic sorethroat.
Treatment depends upon the cause. My advise wil be to see an ENT specialist for full investigations and treatment.

Hi,
It seems like postnasal drip in which excess mucus trickle down from the back of the nose and continously irritate the throat thus causing constant cough.
Stay hydrated to make mucus thinner.Drink 8-10 glasses of water /day.
Salt water gargles are useful.
Septilin losenzes are to be chewed thrice daily.
Allergens should be avoided as they increase mucus production like dust,chemical sprays and even humidity.
Neti will wash the passage and mucus but should be done under supervision of ayurveda expert.

My 17 year old daughter had a sore throat, cough and head ache last week with a low grade temp. She still is not feeling well - last night her headache seemed worse - today it was gone but she is asleep in bed and said all she wants to do is sleep the past couple days and today. I am worried, she said last week while at her dr apt that Mono was going around the school - her dr said she was probably ok because @ the time she had only felt bad for a day or two - he did a flu test on her at the time and it was negative. Should I wait and see how she feels over the next couple days or should I be worried?

my daughter (15 1/2) has had a terrible cough and sore throat. We went to urgent care and they said to wait it out. Next day coughing got worse but sore throat was better, they prescribed an inhaler. That helped for a day or so. Now her chest hurts, coughing non stop, and she gets pretty bad bloody nose once or twice a day. May take her in again, anything I should ask or know?

have persistent heartburn for 3 days (sudden onset) and pretty heavy post nasal drip, with belching and loose stool at times... a little bit tired, almost like a "flu" type feeling. can breath no problem through both nostrils, and no fever. overall, feel "ok," but the heartburn won't go away. took an antacid that helps a little, but not a lot.

Hello Dr,
For the last 2 allergy seasons, I have been having what feels like post-nasal drip that leads to pain in my ears, ear fullness, and what feel like either a mass of mucus or inflammation at the FRONT of my throat (about an inch above where my collar-bone join). I try to swallow to make it go away, but it doesn't go away. I am also experiencing dizziness and a constant foul smell in my nose. There is no green or yellow mucus, but I have red bumps on the back of my throat and my tonsils look inflamed. What do you suggest?
