Phlegm Which Always Produces In The Throat.?
, I want to ask. Why does my throat always produce phlegm. When I finish brushing my teeth my sputum is always there. thank you
Good afternoon, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com. Basically, sputum is normally present in the body and is continuously produced. The benefit is to trap bacteria, dust and fine particles in the air and then removed from the body, namely by the active effort of the person to expel phlegm.
However, if sputum is felt to be too much to interfere, then among the possible causes are:
The impact of smoking, both as active and passive smokers
The impact of consuming foods and drinks that are too sweet
The impact of consuming oily and fatty foods
Drug side effects
Being in a room with dry air, for example air-conditioned room
Stomach acid disease
Our advice, it's best if you have entered the disturbing stage, you check your condition with a pulmonary doctor to get further tests. This examination will cover your habits so far, the history of the disease you have, the environment, and so forth. The doctor will also conduct a brief physical examination and may be supportive if necessary, such as sputum testing to determine the tendency for tuberculosis infection. The handling you will receive later depends on the results of this inspection.
In the meantime, you can reduce phlegm by avoiding sweet foods or drinks, or oily and fatty foods, multiply the consumption of warm drinks, especially those mixed with lemon, take a bath or warm bath, stay away from cigarettes and pollution, gargle with salt water and use air humidifiers in the room. So, hopefully answering your question.
