Post Nasal Drip-Post nasal drip is a sensation of liquid or mucous build up in back of throat. We are constantly sniffing and, of course, breathing. This means that when we sniff, mucous is drawn to back of throat, and when we breathe condensed air moisture is also drawn to back of throat. Post nasal drip may actually be blown back upward into sinuses, or even into ears and Eustachian tube with coughing or sneezing. When this occurs, a sinus infection symptom may quickly become an ear infection symptom.
These are only a few examples of a sinus infection symptom. When a symptom does occur, itís best to be prepared. The best preparation is prevention. I have already mentioned nasal spray, and a lot of people donít understand why that would help. Think of what washing your hands does to prevent bacteria from entering nose and mouth when you touch them. Using nasal spray has same cleansing effect on nasal passages. It is best to use a nasal spray with Xylitol as leading ingredient, as it is a natural enemy to bacteria, and is proven to help prevent sinus infection. As Xylitol rinses out nasal passages, it helps to keep bacteria from settling and festering into infection in moisture and warmth of nasal passages.
