Welcome to the forum!
Allergies and asthma are reasons enough for extra phlegm production. This along with acidity can cause gastric reflux. This reflux can add to the phlegm. There is a chance that you have swollen tonsils and adenoids (adenoids), which hamper with phlegm clearance. Take steam twice a day to loosen this phlegm. Also consult an ENT specialist. Consult an allergy specialist and get allergy tests done to know what you are allergic to. Avoiding the allergens is the best treatment. It is difficult to comment beyond this at this stage. Do discuss this with your doctor and get yourself examined.
Hope this helps. Please let me know if there is any thing else and do keep me posted. Take care!
