I get this icky phlegm in the back of my throat...

 
…and I always have to clear it. It is affecting how I sing and talk. Help!

We hear ya loud and…clear that phlegm. Dr. David Mandell, pediatric otolaryngology, Children’s Hospital, Pittsburgh, says nasal allergies, sinus infections or even a cold can cause mucus to drain from the back of the nose and into the throat.

Otherwise, it could be tonsillitis, adenoiditis or something called GERD (gastroesophageal reflux disease) in which stomach acid reaches the throat, but only a doc can diagnose.

Or it might be simple dehydration causing thick secretions. Drink lots of water, and see if the helps. If not, get a referral from your pediatrician to see an otolaryngologist (that’s an ear/nose/throat specialist).
