Permanent Nasal Drip
Hi, every since i moved up from Durban to Johannesburg last year in April, I have been suffering from a permanent post nasal drip. I wake up in the morning with dry mucus, and it constantly annoys me. What could it be from? Is there anything I can take that will alleviate the problems?

The problem is caused due to the environmental change, from the humid air from Durban to the much colder drier in Johannesburg. It is advisable to consult an ENT specialist for treatment and the best advice.
