What can I do to control excessive mucus secretion that needs to be spitted out frequently?

My question may be for an immunologist. I have been suffering for many years with excess mucus that I have to spit out all day long. It is much worse after I eat, so I am wondering if it might be allergy related. I have had everything else ruled out. Any suggestions on where to go would be wonderful.

In case of excess mucus secretion, it's important to rule out chronic bronchitis or other respiratory pathology.

I suggest you investigate with sputum routine microscopic examination and digital chest x-ray for primary workup.

You can revert back with reports if already done to give detailed comment.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
