Dear Anon
your body requires a certain amount of post nasal drip to keep the air that you inhale both moist and warm. If the amount increases, or the consistancy changes, you will become aware of it. You need a full ENT examination to establish a cause, as it is never a good idea to dry up the drip completely.
Treatment can only be suggested after a diagnosis is made.
