How are you? Are there other symptoms present? The nose and sinus membranes may secrete more than the amount of mucus when they are irritated by allergies, air pollution, smoke, or viral infections or colds. This post nasal drip can be a clear, watery mucus while that of bacterial infections presents with thick, sticky mucus with pus in it, turning it a yellow or green color phlegm. This can also have associated nasty nasal odor with it. Treatment usually depends on the underlying cause. And it is best that a direct clinical examination by a doctor is done for proper management. Take care and do keep us posted.
