There Is Mucus In The Throat When Swallowing And Runny Nose When Not Flu?
I want to ask when I was 22 years old when I swallowed, I felt mucus in my throat and when I was breathing a bit it was disturbed, even though I didn’t have the flu at the same time I felt runny.
Thank you for the question.
Throat and nose that feel slimy to the point of discomfort when breathing are usually a natural thing to do because exposure to air is dry, cold, dusty, polluted, or smoky. Some types of drugs, such as anti-hypertensive drugs, if consumed, can also cause side effects like this in some sensitive people. If your daily activities often require you to talk a lot and shout, then this activity can also increase mucus production in your nose and throat. This condition, as long as it does not cause you to cough, runny nose, sneezing, itching or pain in the throat, hoarseness, difficulty swallowing, fever, spasms, or other severe complaints, is generally not dangerous.
You need to be vigilant if your complaint feels very annoying, repeats very often, or to cause a more severe complaint as we have mentioned above. If this is the case, it is more likely that you have experienced allergies, viral or bacterial infections, anatomical disorders of the nasal or throat cavity (such as due to septal deviation), benign or malignant tumors (such as polyps, carcinomas), bronchitis, aspiration, smoking habits , immune disorders, gastric acid reflux, or many other possibilities. You can check with your doctor or ENT doctor so that what causes these complaints can be identified early, and handled well. That way, your activities are no longer interrupted by it.
As a natural treatment to improve your complaint, try the following steps:
No excessive shouting
Avoid exposure to air dry, cold, dusty, polluted, or smoky, for example by using masks, air humidifiers, jackets, and not excessive use of air conditioners or fans
Do not smoke
Limit consumption of foods and drinks that are cold, oily, and artificial sweetness
Eat more vegetables and fruits that are rich in vitamin C
Do not carelessly take medication without a doctor's prescription
Hope this helps ...
