Clear Phlegm Every Time You Wake Up Without A Cough?
Hello. I want to ask about the sputum problem. Every day I issue phlegm. Most often when I wake up. Sputum color is clear and a little runny. No complaints of fever, flu, cough. It just happened this month. What are the possible causes and ask for a solution. Mksh
Thank you for the question.
Increased sputum production, especially when waking up, is most likely caused by throat irritation, for example due to exposure to cold air, smoke, dust mites, and so on. It could also be that other factors such as excessive vocal cord stretching (for example if you often scream or talk excessively) or allergies (for example cold allergies, pollen allergies, or other substance allergies) also aggravate this condition. As long as it is clear phlegm that appears clear color and consistency is runny, without causing fever, cough, runny nose, difficulty breathing, hoarseness, or other severe complaints, often this condition is not dangerous can be treated with natural efforts as follows:
Do not shout or talk excessively Drink more warm water, may also add ginger or honey Do not breathe through the mouth Do not use excessive air conditioning or fan Use air humidifier and air purifier if possible Before sleeping, make sure your bedding is clean, sprey is changed periodically, and do not use cotton-based bedding. Reduce, if necessary avoid, consumption of oily foods, artificial sweetness, berampas, and too cold Rest and regular exercise to increase endurance Do not smoke Use a mask, especially when in a polluted environment or being close to someone who has an infectious respiratory infection If with the above efforts your complaint does not improve, or appear phlegm bleeding, fever, cough, runny nose, spasms, vomiting, hoarseness, swollen lymph nodes, body weight drops dramatically, difficult to swallow, and other severe complaints, immediately check yourself directly to the doctor or doctor ENT. Concerned, your complaint appears related to more serious diseases, such as tonsillopharyngitis, rhinosinusitis, nasopharyngeal cancer, bronchitis, laryngitis, pneumonia, asthma, esophagitis, and so on.
I hope this helps.
