A correct diagnosis of a patient’s condition is crucial to properly treating a patient with post-nasal drip. More commonly known as post-nasal drip, this condition occurs when the mucous membrane, usually located in the back of the throat, becomes excessively thick and slows the movement of air through the throat. Treatment for sinusitis, viral infections, and allergies are briefly discussed in other articles. Sinusitis is typically treated with prescription or over-the counter medicines, depending on the extent of the symptoms.
For patients who only experience mild to moderate post nasal drip symptoms, home remedies may be more appropriate. The use of over-the Counter (OTC) medications such as decongestants and antihistamines can alleviate the symptoms of postnasal drip and may provide temporary relief from some of the other symptoms associated with this condition. These medications are available without a prescription. However, it should be noted that these types of medications should not be used for extended periods of time due to potential side effects.
Another common cause of post nasal drip symptoms is chronic sinus conditions such as post-menopausal symptoms, which can lead to thick mucus in the throat that prevents the movement of air through it. Coughing is one of those common causes. Other symptoms of chronic sinus problems include facial pain, facial swelling, headache, toothache, dizziness, fever, swollen glands in the neck and face, tenderness and pain of the head, a feeling of stuffiness in the ear, and the feeling of having something stuck in the throat. Some of these symptoms can also be associated with the flu.
Post Nasal Drip caused by allergic reactions to airborne allergens, pet dander, dust or pollen can lead to a runny nose, itchy or red eyes, sneezing and watery eyes, difficulty breathing, swelling of the face or throat, itching or pain in the ears, cough or sore throat.
Common Symptoms of Post Nasal Drip
Unfortunately, there aren’t any nasal drip home remedies in existence. Unfortunately, if you’re experiencing any or all of these symptoms, you’re dealing with an allergy to something called “Crocidol”. This is a nasal and throat irritant. This is the most common cause of post nasal drip.
Unfortunately, not everyone who’s allergic to this substance experiences it. However, when your medications make you feel runny or even slightly congested, then you may be allergic to it. Unfortunately, there aren’t any medications on the market that cure people who are allergic to COVID 19. Most allergy medications have a list of ingredients that come from animals and crops. Unfortunately, there aren’t any medications that cure people who are allergic to this material, only that their symptoms can be reduced.
In addition, because of the nature of allergy medications, many of the symptoms created by allergies are considered “working” allergies. Allergies are supposed to run their course without problems. However, not everyone is lucky enough to have their allergy symptoms “run their course”. If your symptoms persist for three or more weeks, then you may be a candidate for COVID allergy.

The symptoms of this allergy typically include headache, nasal congestion, difficulty breathing, runny nose, coughing, wheezing, or irritated eyes. In addition, the symptoms of this allergy often include a feeling of pain in the chest area. Because the majority of the symptoms of allergies include difficulty breathing, the chest pain can make it difficult for a person to get the assistance they need when suffering from a cold or a flu.
