Excess saliva formation in the mouth

Patient: My mouth is always filled with excess saliva, that when i talk spit come out from my mouth

 

 

Doctor: Excessive saliva can sometimes be due to an underlying etiology. It could be related to infection in your tonsils (Tonsi llitis), respiratory infections, medications and some neurological disorders. I would like you to visit your Family physician for further evaluation. In the meanwhile try drinking plenty of water and avoid spicy food.
