Why If After Eating There Is Always Phlegm In The Throat?
Good evening I want to ask this question, why is it that after eating there is always phlegm in my throat? I always waste phlegm up to 5 times after eating.
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Need to clarify beforehand, how long have you felt this complaint? Does the complaint always appear every time you consume all types of food, or only certain types of foods? Are there other complaints that arise, for example sputum bleeding, nausea, coughing, tightness, sore throat, fever, and so on?
Some foods have the potential to trigger excessive sputum production, for example cold-temperature foods, oily foods, coconut milk foods, and also foods that contain artificial sweeteners. Allergies to certain foods can also increase phlegm production, so you can feel an uncomfortable sensation in your throat. Frequently, as long as your complaint only appears occasionally, and is not accompanied by other more severe complaints, your condition is not dangerous. You can resolve your complaint with the following steps:
Recognize any food that often triggers an increase in your sputum production (for example as mentioned above), and as much as possible avoid excessive consumption of these foods exposed to air conditioners and fans that are too cold Use a nose and mouth mask when in an airy, polluted environment Don't smoke, stay away from the smoke Also consume fruits and vegetables that are rich in vitamin C, for example guava, lemon, strawberry, sprouts your stay so that it is always clean However, if your complaint does not seem to improve with the steps above, you should check your complaint directly to the doctor or a specialist in internal medicine. It is feared, your complaint arises because of an illness, such as ISPA (acute respiratory infection), allergies, irritation, malignancy around the throat, GERD (reflux of stomach acid into the esophagus), and so on. With a comprehensive physical examination and / or supporting tests (for example x-rays, blood tests, or endoscopy), often the doctor can give you the appropriate treatment so that your complaints improve.
Hope this helps ...
