Does anyone else get a dry spot inside their mouth - right at the hinge of the jaw - that triggers coughing fits? If so, do you have a strategy that helps?

@janellecshane
I don't, I wonder if it's to do with a non-functioning saliva duct / gland?

@janellecshane happened a couple of times and I made sure to keep it properly salivated and put coconut oil on it with either my finger or the tip of my tongue before going to sleep, which helped.

@janellecshane Honey. Pure natural locally sourced and untreated honey. It's a natural medicine. It works for me with similar symptoms.

@janellecshane Usually I get this only when I have a throat infection. I use Nim Jeom to alleviate it.
