Q.231 - I have post nasal drip. The mucus dries after I use the NeilMed squeeze bottle and feels like lumps in my throat. Sometimes the saline solution comes out of my mouth when I squeeze the last out of the bottle and feels as if it has rinsed these lumps away. How can I get that to happen more often?
Thanks for your question.It seems that you have more dried out mucus. When you use the NeilMed squeeze bottle, it is possible that some of the dried out mucus is irritating the back of your throat as you mention that when you rinse further the lumps go away. Consider using NeilMed's nasal gel which is a moisturizing gel which will keep your nasal passage better moisturized and hopefully the mucus will stay soft and moist.
