Nasal Mucus That Enters The Oral Cavity And Coughs At Night?
I want to ask, I have seen a doctor and have been given medication to relieve rhinitis and thank God it has improved, but lately when my rhinitis has a runny nose I can’t get out of the nose and come out of the mouth and sometimes I cough while sleeping but when I wake up the cough subsides on its own, a suggestion to reduce the intensity of my cough besides taking medicine I am afraid of dependence later, thank you
Good afternoon, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com. Nasal mucus that enters the oral cavity is a sign called post natal drip, or mucus droplets that enter the oral cavity through a channel that is connected behind the nose. This can happen especially when we look up and make the nasal mucus flow back and not through the nostrils in front. This will improve by itself along with your recovery and is not a sign of a certain emergency.
As for coughing at night, there are many things that can cause this, including:
Choking by the nasal mucus Nerve disorders Gastric acid disease Asthma Bronchitis
So to find out the best treatment, it must be done an examination first, because it needs to be found out which is more likely from the options above through excavation of in-depth history, a short physical examination and maybe support if needed. Therefore, our advice should you check your condition back to the doctor who treated you so far.
Meanwhile, you can try sleeping with your head slightly raised or sleeping on your side. You can also consume warm tea mixed with honey or lemon before going to bed, do not eat anything for up to 2 hours before going to bed, use an air humidifier, make sure your bedroom is clean of dust and dirt, gargle with salt water and avoid smoking. So, hopefully answering your question.
