  • Can you have post nasal drip but with dry nose?

    I always thought that post nasal drip is caused by excessive mucus buildup in your nose, that drip down your throat. However, in my case I have constant gluey mucus stuck at my nasopharynx, behind the soft palate where my nose meets my throat. So I believe it’s post nasal drip since it’s at the...

  • Mucus plug

    For years I’ve suffered with a post nasal drip and build up of mucous at the back of my nose! When I get a cold it gets 10x worse.
