  • Sounds like post nasal drip. Try Benadryl.

  • You can take Mucinex. It does sound like post nasal drip and the mucinex will dry it up.

    Make sure to drink plenty of water as I tend to get dehydrated when I take it.

  • That's one of the first signs that I will be without a voice very shortly. LOL!!! I have horrible allergies. Gargle salt water, drink tea with honey and lemon. Keep hydrated.
