The Solution To Overcome Phlegm Blocking The Throat Every Morning?
good morning, i am zulif.
Hello Zulif, thanks for the question for HealthReplies.com
The human respiratory tract basically always produces mucus which has a function to keep the respiratory tract moist and help expel dirt and small particles that enter the respiratory tract. This mucus will normally be expelled naturally and will not accumulate in the airways to cause certain disorders. In certain conditions, there can be interference with mucus secretion or increased mucus production, resulting in a buildup of mucus in the airways. Some conditions that can cause this include:
infections of the respiratory tract (including rhinitis, sinusitis, pharyngitis) irritation of the airways such as smoking or exposure to pollution, allergies, diseases such as cystic fibrosis In the meantime you can try doing the following:
Make sure you always drink in sufficient quantities (at least 2-3 liters a day). Drinking enough will help thin mucus making it easier to expel Avoid smoking Avoid exposure to cigarette smoke and other air pollution If you have allergies (eg to dust mites, animal dander) avoid these allergens Clean your bed and pillows and bolsters regularly
If these symptoms persist or get worse, you should consult an ENT doctor for further evaluation and management.
That's all the information from me, I hope it's enough to answer
