Suggest remedy for dry mouth

Why do I have a constant dry mouth? I have to wake at least every hour to take a drink because my mouth is so dry and I drink constantly throughout the day to wet my mouth. Also, the last two days I have been having a bloody nose. Could this be related in any way?

Thanks for your query. I have gone through your query.
The dry mouth can be because of the reduced salivary secretion secondary to stone in the salivary gland duct. Nothing to be panic, consult an oral physician and get it evaluated. You need to get a radiograph to confirm the diagnosis.
Mean while you can take artificial salivary substitutes like carboxy methyl cellulose. The bleeding from nose is not related to xerostomia or dry mouth. For this you need to consult an ENT surgeon and get it evaluated.
I hope i have answered your query. Take care
