Treatment of nasal drip depends on its cause

I RECEIVED an e-mail from someone suffering from post-nasal drip. The glands lining your nose produce mucus every day, and mostly you are unaware of it. But when you have a cold, flu or allergies, your body will produce more mucus than usual. If this mucus runs down the back of your nose into your throat, you have a post-nasal drip.
Bacterial infections are treated with antibiotics. Viral infections, sinusitis and allergies are treated with antihistamines and decongestants.
