Throat Phlegm But No Cough Or Pain In The Throat?
Hello, I want to ask.
Hello! Thank you for the question on HealthReplies.com
Phlegm is a certain fluid produced by the airway, usually due to a certain inflammatory condition.
Clear colored phlegm, of course, must be distinguished from saliva, because it can be misinterpreted that what is thought to be phlegm is saliva. Phlegm is generally thick, can be clear (in viral infections, allergies), yellowish or greenish (in bacterial infections), and red (if there is a mixture of blood from the airway that has an injury).
Coughing does not always accompany phlegm symptoms. If the fluid is produced in the upper airway, the cough may not occur, because the mucus does not touch the nerve area that triggers the cough (junction of the pulmonary canal), there is only a lump that makes the patient cough repeatedly.
To ensure that there is mucus that you experience, you should consult your general practitioner first for a physical examination or supporting examination such as further sputum check. If tracking or follow-up is needed, the doctor will consider referring you to a particular specialist according to the suspicion of the condition.
As for what you should do is:
Expand the consumption of water at least 2 liters per day
If there is a lump in the throat or cough, you can consume lemon mixed with honey to help relieve the throat
Limit strenuous physical activity, get enough rest
Increase consumption of vegetables and fruit, to help maintain good immune system
That's all the explanation from me, hopefully it helps and useful :)
