A post nasal drip is usually infected mucous which drips down from the back of the nose,down the back of the throat then being swallowed or small amounts can land up in the respiratory system. The mucous comes from infected adenoids or sometimes from the sinuses in children.Using saline nose drops regularly help to keep the nasal passages clear and helps to reduce the amount of infected mucous that can enter the lower respiratory system.
