I have had quite a bitof mucus (post basel drip) going down my throat causing coughing and affecting my breathing.
I found that when ever I take a hot shower it seems to ease off for a few hours. I've started to breath in hot moist air by p[lacing my head over a bowl with hot water and a towel over my head. Its cheaper that getting a hot moist air humidifier.

Best wishes,
