Hi Appy,

Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.

Under normal conditions, the oral cavity will always be moistened with watery, clear saliva. Thick, yellowish mucus (phlegm) from the mouth as you experience may be due to the following conditions:

Infections of the mouth or throat, for example due to fungi, viruses, or bacteria, for example candidiasis, gonorrhea, herpes simplex, group A beta hemolytic streptococcus Cough with phlegm, for example due to allergies, ARI (acute respiratory infection), tuberculosis, chronic bronchitis, pneumonia Benign or malignant tumors around the oral cavity, throat, or airway Irritation of the oral cavity, such as due to improper use of braces or dentures Side effects of drugs, etc. It is also possible that the thick, yellowish mucus actually comes from food waste that has accumulated , for example, because a toothbrush is not clean.

To distinguish each of these possibilities, you should check with your doctor directly. The doctor will observe, exactly what the mucus is, whether it really comes from sputum, food scraps, or other causes. Treatment will be adjusted to the cause of your complaint.

What you should do at this point is:

Improve the cleanliness of your teeth and mouth, namely by brushing your teeth regularly followed by gargling with salt water or an antiseptic mouthwash. Do not throw phlegm too strong. Drink more. Eat healthy and nutritious food.
