After having a cold and taking antibiotics I have been left with a very dry throat and a build up of phlegm behind tonsils. I can feel it there and every couple of days manage to bring forward this green/yellow sticky mass which is a lump and not watery or runny. As soon as it has been expelled it builds up again until I can expel it. Can you explain.
It sounds as though you have a a 'post-nasal drip' - that is, excessive mucus production at the back of your nose. This can develop after a cold or sinus infection or may be caused by an allergy. Talk with your doctor or pharmacist. Treatment may involve a simple intranasal spray or an oral decongestant or antihistamine depending on the cause.
