Nasal polyps are soft, painless growths that appear on the inside of your nasal passages. They look like tiny teardrops or grapes. They are caused by re-occurring infection, drug sensitivity, allergies… or asthma. It is important to note that they are not cancerous.
In most cases, small nasal polyps do not cause symptoms; however, larger polyps can block your nasal passages, lead to infections, breathing problems or inhibit your sense of smell. Nasal polyps can affect anyone but they are most commonly found in adults. In most cases, medication can eliminate or shrink them but sometimes surgery is needed.
What Is Post Nasal Drip?
Post nasal drip is the accumulation of mucous behind your nose and throat, which gives the feeling of mucus dripping down from behind your nose. In most cases, a person doesn’t notice post nasal drip because it mixes with saliva and goes down the back of your throat, where it is swallowed. It is when your body gives out more mucus than normal that it becomes more noticeable. To be clear, when mucus runs behind the nose to the throat, it becomes post nasal drip.
What Causes Post Nasal Drip?
There are various factors that cause post nasal drip such as: flu, colds, allergies, certain medications like blood pressure medications and birth control pills. Other factors that cause post nasal drip are: an object in the nose, a deviated septum, cold or dry air, certain foods like spicy foods, perfumes, smoke or cleaning products.
What Are The Symptoms Of Post Nasal Drip?
The symptoms of post nasal drip are not serious but they can be frustrating. When a person experiences post nasal drip, he or she has a feeling that they want to constantly clear their throat. The feeling of post nasal drip is often irritating which sometimes triggers a cough. This kind of cough often gets worse at night.
What Are The Risk Factors For Nasal Polyps And How Are They Treated?

Unfortunately, it is not entirely clear about the risk factors of nasal polyps but nasal polyps are often associated with those who suffer from sinus conditions, those who are allergic to aspirin, chronic infections or those who suffer from asthma.
Nasal polyps are usually diagnosed by a doctor and one of the beginning treatments for nasal polyps is a nasal corticosteroid spray. In most cases, the spray will shrink or eliminate them. In other cases, oral corticosteroids are prescribed and if they become persistent a medical examination with a nasal endoscope may be needed.
