    I had post nasal drip for a few years because I had become lactose intolerant without realizing it.

    At the time, what I had read was that for some folks, the mucus and post nasal drip can happen when the nasal cavity is not moist enough.  Essentially the little hairs in the cavity are not lubricated enough to quickly move the mucus.  I've found that I am also more likely to have blood in my mucus when it is very dry.

    You might want to try a neti pot with saline.  That helps to moisturize your cavity, and move the mucus out.  It is also great if you have allergies, because it moves the allergens out of your nose.  The neti pot will feel ridiculous at first, but after a few tries, it is pretty easy.  I use the NeilMed sinus rinse.

    Hope that helps.

      Before I knew I was lactose intolerant, and had yogurt every day for breakfast with some milk in my coffee ... I had it every day for a few years.  Ugh.

      Also, I found that the post nasal drip led to sinus infections, so I was sick alot.

      But once I found the root cause, I haven't had post nasal drip sinse.

      I hope you figure it out!

      Consider trying the neti pot thing.  The one i use is a plastic bottle filled with slightly salty warm water.  You squeeze water into one nostril, and it comes out the other.  It feels ridiculous at first, but it really helped me.  You can do it when you are taking a shower so you don't need to worry about mess.  It helps with allergies, too.
