Good day, Just wondering.. Everytime I woked-up in the morning I always notice a sticky phlegm inside my throat..and always start my morning with that sticky thing even without any symptoms of colds.. One thing I also noticed is that I am always sneezing (almost 10X)when I encounter some dust or during cleaning a house or something...am I have sinusitis that causes bad breath? please help...

Hi Christine,
Thank you for the comment. I already tried anti-histamine products and its good. But on the next day, still have that phlegm again and I'm a bit worried to be dependent of taking medicines everyday. I will see my doctor and will let you know what would be the findings..

Hi Blossom,
Thank you for your question and for finding EmpowHER. I'm not a doctor, but from my own personal experience it seems to me that you have allergies to dust. It is true that if this goes untreated, bouts of allergies can turn into a sinus infection. The bacteria can cause bad breath and that thick phlegm you are talking about. Have you seen a doctor about allergies? You can try wearing a mask or bandana over your mouth and nose when cleaning to avoid breathing in that dust, etc. You also can try taking an anti-histamine product to see if it helps. Additionally, I have found sinus rinse super helpful at keeping allergies from turning into infections. I also have been to a holistic doctor about allergies, and have since been taking supplements that seem to have helped, but you should see your own doctor or dentist first to rule out other conditions that could be causing your problems.
