There are many causes of chronic mucous in the
throat. The common one is post-nasal
drip from hay fever. You should try an
anti-histamine. You can buy this at a
chemist, e.g. Zyrtec. Try it for 5 days
and see if it helps. An alternative
might be acid coming up your food pipe.
For this you will need antacid therapy. You should see a doctor to discuss other
possibilities and to determine the best way forward.
