Hi, sorry I am just seeing your post. That had to be driving you nuts, I hate post nasal drip and when it is sticky? Ugh. I'm a big fan of Mucinex until it is gone as it keeps it thinner and less annoying or able to get trapped and fester into an infection. So, keep that in mind next time. Is it better now? If not, I'd suggest a neti pot. This is also called nasal lavage as well. It basically uses a little pot to clean out your sinuses. My husband swears by it! He has chronic problems and this helps keep him functioning. I think ibuprofen is good during it also as it reduces inflammation and irritation from it (which is uncomfortable). Anyway, give us a status report of where you are at now and we'll go from there.
