How to Treat Severe Post Nasal Drip

The nose produces mucous on a continual basis and that mucous drains down the back of the throat. When that mucous increases in volume or changes in consistency, it can result in post nasal drip syndrome. Post nasal drip (PND) is one of the most common causes of cough and sore throat. There are many common remedies to alleviate post-nasal drip, but definitive treatment depends on the root cause.
