Can nasal drip cause chest congestion?

0

My nose runs and subsequently my chest becomes congested due to a nasal drip. The strange part is that I cough every time it rains and the coughing usually remains at least a week after. I experience no sinus pressure and no headache nor fever. The most irritating aspect is the nasal drip seems to go straight to my chest. Is this a sinus problem or allergies?

Hi there,

Thanks for your question. Post-nasal drip occurs when mucus builds up in the back of the nose and throat. Post-nasal drip is not a medical condition, but it may be a symptom of another medical condition that causes excessive mucus production such as:

– Sinusitis
– Rhinitis
– Infections
