Why am i getting dripping cough from upper part of the throat ?

hi doctor , i m 20years old. My problem is that the upper part of my throat is always discharging a thick transparent liquid which is similar to cold dripping . This problem started as a bad cold with fever and continues to still persist... Its been 4 months. At the beginning i had bad pain in the upper palate of my throat but now the pain is reduced. I m a non smoker. The feeling that cough is dripping from the upper part of the throat and throat getting stuck with cough is really bugging me . Please do reply at the earliest.

Hi Vijesh,

Welcome to HealthcareMagic Forum
The thick transparent liquid you are getting from behind the nose is called the post nasal drip, its the sinus secretions. No need to worry as this is common after an attack of flu. You need to do steam inhalation, drink plenty of warm water and use saline nasal drops 3-4 times/day. If the symptoms persists please do consult a good ENT specialist.
