Doctors for Postnasal Drip in Yattingudda, Hubli-Dharwad
ratings and reviews)
Every day, glands in the lining of the nose, stomach, throat, and intestinal tract produce about 2 quarts of mucus, a thick, wet substance that moistens these areas and helps trap foreign materials like bacteria. Only when the body produces more mucus than usual or the mucus is thicker than normal, it is noticeable. When the mucus runs down the back of the nose to the throat, it is called Postnasal Drip. Postnasal Drip creates an annoying feeling that makes you want to clear the throat. Postnasal Drip is the most common cause of chronic cough.
HOW IS POSTNASAL DRIP DIAGNOSED?
A correct diagnosis requires a detailed ear, nose, and throat exam, and possibly laboratory, endoscopic (procedures that use a tube to look inside the body), and x-ray studies.
HOW IS POSTNASAL DRIP TREATED?
Treatment depends on the extent of the problem because for many experts, this is a natural physiologic process referred to as “pseudo-syndrome”. However treatments given include medications to relieve nose block like nasal drops. Antibiotic drops are also given to relieve infections.
