The solution depends on where the fluid is coming from. If from your nose and sinuses, such as postnasal drip, then nasal washes followed by a nasal steroid spray would be appropriate. If the fluid is coming from your stomach, either quietly or “belched-up”, then it is acid reflux and you would benefit from any of the medicines used for this purpose, such as Nexium® (esomeprazole). If it is being coughed-up into your throat, then you have a lung problem, such as asthma or chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) or chronic bronchitis. In that case, smoking cessation, the avoidance of industrial pollutants and the use of asthma/COPD inhalers such as Advair® HFA (fluticasone propionate and salmeterol) Inhalation Aerosol, would be the correct treatment. But, first, you and your doctor should attempt to determine the source of the fluid.
