I am always having saliva in my mouth when I slep.I alwys wakeup in the morning and my pillow is drained with saliver.

I am in my late 30s. and about 3 years ago I noticed that I am always having saliva in my mouth when I sleep. I also use to have gum bleeding. So every morning I use to find out that my pillow in drained in saliva This make me uncomfortable and sad.
Pls advice me on what to do before I loose my mind.

Treatment of persistent, excessive salivation depends on underlying cause.
Infection in your mouth or throat could be one of the reason for excess saliva as u mentioned you have bleeding gums. Consult doctor.
For bleeding gums-
Take one cup orange juice with 1/2 teaspoon natural sugar atleast for 15-20 days.

Here are few tips to stop drooling during sleep-

  • Breathe through your nose. Ensure that you have clear nasal passage otherwise see doctor. With a clear nasal passage, you will be more inclined to keep your mouth closed during sleep.
  • Sleep on your back.
