What is Post Nasal Drip?
Post-Nasal Drip (PND) – is a condition as a result of excess mucus dripping down the back of the throat.
Your nose and throat have glands in them. These glands have two main functions which are to produce mucus and help air pass through when you breathe in. Typically the glands produces from 1 to 2 quarts of mucus a day. The mucus then operates in fighting off infections by humidifying air, trapping and clearing many of the foreign particles we inhale daily. The body triggers how much mucus should be produced, if we have cold or flu or the system is under attack, the body increases the production of mucus. When mucus is increased it can concentrate and become thick which makes it harder to move and then starts causing blockages.
During this time, the body increases mucus production in order to try and move the blockage, which result in excess mucus dripping down the back of the throat.
When this discomforting condition persists, which is likely to, the throat may become irritated and sore. At this stage, a sinus infection develops intensifying the cold and flu like symptoms. Excess mucus settles and irritates the nasal and throat lining causing the following:
- Post Nasal Drip
- Sore and irriatated throat
- A cough
- Loss of voice
- Nasea or Vomiting
- Flu like symptoms
The above mentioned conditions may make you feel as though you are coming down with the flu.
