What causes excessive salivation?

Hello, I am a 49 yr old male 5 8 150lbs,who has had an increased saliva problem for about 10 months.At first, it was clear fluid, but now it is very foamy and full of air bubbles.It started after I had oral sex with a woman who told me she had genital herpes,but it was in a malignant stage at the time;I ve noticed that when I drink beer, it seems to increase at a faster rate. Could this be some sort of yeast infection?

Hello,

Your symptoms are suggestive of a possible infection in the salivary glands. For this reason, I recommend consulting with your attending physician for a physical exam of the salivary glands and performing a bacterial culture of the tongue and mouth fluids. You should discuss with your doctor on the above tests.

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

Regards,
Dr. Ilir Sharka, Cardiologist
