Even after getting rid of that and washing my mouth and throat with water, it keeps on coming.

Hello and welcome to EmpowHer,
Since your postnasal drip is not related to having a cold or sinus infection it may be the following:
--Deviated septum (abnormal placement of the wall that separates the two nostrils) or another anatomical problem that affects the sinuses
--Changing weather fronts, cold temperatures, or excess dryness in the air
--Certain foods (for example, spicy foods may trigger mucus flow)
--Fumes from chemicals, perfumes, cleaning products, smoke, or other irritants
--Certain medications (including some birth control pills and blood pressure medications)

If the problem persists you will be to see a doctor to determine the cause and receive the proper treatment is necessary.
I hope that helps.
