The respiratory tract produces mucus that functions to lubricate, maintain airway humidity and the most important thing is to prevent foreign objects from entering the body from the surrounding air. In the lining of the respiratory tract, contained immunoglobulin A which functions as the immune system to maintain the respiratory tract from foreign objects, viruses or bacteria that enter the body.
Some people have more mucus production than others. This is a variation and tends to be normal. Excessive mucus production will certainly cause an uncomfortable sensation in the throat. In addition, various types of respiratory diseases such as ARI and other respiratory infections also have the potential to cause more mucus production in the respiratory tract. Increased mucus production can be one of the body's response if the body feels there are germs or foreign objects that threaten the body's defenses. Therefore, you don't need to worry about your complaints as long as no other disturbing symptoms are found such as shortness of breath, persistent cough, fever, pain around the nose, etc.
To help reduce your complaints, consume more water, avoid exposure to cigarette smoke, dust or pollution around you by wearing a nose mask, consume healthy and nutritious food, and rest regularly. If the complaint does not seem to improve, do not hesitate to do a consultation and examination to the nearest ENT specialist doctor. So much information that I can convey, hopefully it helps
