Hi, good afternoon. Thank you for asking this question to us.

This answer is a general information about the problem you are facing which is excessive phlegm in the throat. Please click on this link (DoctorOnCall) to talk to a doctor.

You can easily get ear, nose & throat problems, but don’t let it get to you.

Based on the above explanation, we understand your concerns about the symptoms / problems encountered. For your information sir, this problem can be caused by various things. Such as:

  • Acid reflux
  • Allergies
  • Asthma
  • Common Cold
  • Infections
  • Chronic bronchitis, Pneumonia, COPD

Excess phlegm production can also result from certain lifestyle and environmental factors, such as:

  • a dry indoor environment
  • low consumption of water and other fluids
  • high consumption of fluids that can lead to fluid loss, such as coffee, tea, and alcohol
  • certain medications
  • smoking

If this problem persists and worsens, you are advised to see a doctor for proper consultation and treatment.

Discuss your symptoms with an ear, nose and throat(ENT) specialist for their expert advice.

However, this information is only a general information about your problem. In order to get a confirmation about the diagnosis of the disease, you need to undergo an examination. I recommend you to see a doctor nearby for a complete examination and treatment. You can also click on the link (DoctorOnCall) to contact our specialist doctors online for more information.
