About Drooling of saliva
Drooling is generally caused by: problem in keeping saliva in the mouth, problem with swallowing and too much production of saliva. Some people with drooling problems are at increased risk of breathing saliva, food, or fluids into the lungs. This may cause harm if there is a problem with the body's normal reflexes (such as gagging and coughing). Some drooling in infants and toddlers is normal. It may occur with teething. Drooling in infants and young children may get worse with colds and allergies. Infections can cause too much production of saliva, including mononucleosis, peritonsillar abscess, strep throat, sinus infections, and tonsillitis. Other conditions that can cause too much saliva are allergies, heartburn or GERD (reflux), poisoning (especially by pesticides), pregnancy (may be due to pregnancy side effects such as nausea or reflux), reaction to snake or insect venom, swollen adenoids, use of certain medications. Drooling may also be caused by nervous system disorders that make it hard to swallow.
