What treatment or medicines should I take for the sticky saliva ?

hi, I m 27 years old and I have had dry lips and very sticky saliva since my childhood. my saliva sticks on my teeth and lips like glue and I need to wash my mouth many times a day. having something white and sticky on lips is very disgusting and has confined me too much. I can not even use lipstick for more than half an hour. actually I don t know what to do?! I m 51 kilograms and 162 cm and I was very weak in my childhood.

Thanks for query,
It seems that you might have some infection in your salivary glands and mild blockage of salivary ducts.
Please see that you do not have tartered teeth or any infection.
Do plenty of gargling with salted warm water.
Take plenty of water.
Ok and bye.
