Why Does My Throat Come Out Phlegm?
, I experienced a strange thing, always coming out sputum is not too thick and not runny, but with a small but frequent amount. I have a fever right now, I have never experienced anything like this, if my saliva is bitter I often experience it when I have a fever, but this one is not phlegm that comes out through the throat just cannot come out of the nose. The smell is not pleasant like the smell of pandanus, and I do not experience coughing, how to overcome this
Hi Daus, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com
In the throat there is a mucous layer that serves as a protector. This mucous layer also produces mucus which also functions as a protector. If there are germs through it, it will be attached to the mucus produced by the mucous layer to be swallowed or removed as a cough. When there is inflammation either due to a viral or bacterial infection or due to substance irritation, it will cause the mucous layer to produce more mucus than usual. Virus-infected throat, characterized by watery mucus. Meanwhile, if infected with bacteria, marked by white mucus, yellowish or greenish, depending on the bacteria that causes it. Usually, besides mucus, inflammation of the throat is followed by sore throat, if it is heavy, it is difficult to swallow.
To overcome this, consume lots of warm water. Also consume honey and oranges brewed with warm water. Honey and oranges contain high vitamin C, which functions in repairing the mucosal layer that is damaged by the inflammatory process. If the complaint does not improve within 3 days, you can consult the nearest doctor.
Thus hopefully useful.
