Hi Doctor, I ask for a recommendation for a drug to treat mucus in the throat. I didn’t cough but the mucus kept on my throat and made me uncomfortable. Please find a solution. Thanks

1 Answer:

Hi Fridus, Thanks for your question.


The production of mucus in the throat is one of the respiratory tract defense responses to things that cause irritation or are harmful to the respiratory tract. Mucus in the throat can be caused by:

flu
sinusitis
allergy
sore throat
upper respiratory tract infection

You can do the following:

doing steam inhalation, for example inhaling steam from a bowl of hot water or taking a shower with warm water
consuming warm drinks
do gargle with salt water

If this complaint has been going on for several days especially if it is accompanied by high fever, difficulty breathing, nasal congestion, cough, please consult your doctor immediately for further examination and treatment. The doctor will provide treatment according to your condition.


Hope this information is useful.
