Health Tip: Treating Post-Nasal Drip

(HealthDay News) -- That persistent tickle in the back of your throat may be diagnosed as post-nasal drip, says Harvard Medical School.

It mentions these common treatment options for the condition:

  • Use a humidifier, or take a hot shower.

  • Keep well-hydrated to help keep mucus thin.

  • Sleep on propped-up pillows.

  • Moisten the inside of your nose with an over-the-counter product.

  • Use an oral decongestant or antihistamine.

If these approaches aren't effective, speak with your doctor about prescription treatments.
