I have also been relying on my fan heater to be keeping me warm thru the cold weather and have lately stopped.Not sure if this is also a contibuting factor...?

Antibiotics will cure a secondary infection that may have resulted as a result of your PND - It wont stop the PND itself. The drip may be due to allergies, irritation of cold/flu.

It can be treated with an OTC antihistamine or a decongestant.

I' ve had this post nasal drip for over 7 years now. Feels like it is causing bad breadth. Went to an ENT. Even had tonsils removed. Please advise if there is a cure.
