Drooling

Reasons

Drooling

Excessive drooling can have many causes, from allergies to medications to sleep problems, and some causes may actually be serious health conditions.

Picture a juicy cheeseburger. A slice of cool, crisp watermelon. Pretty much anything with bacon. Are you drooling yet?

It’s common to jokingly describe a delectable dish as drool-worthy. 

But unwanted, excessive drooling — usually while sleeping — is no laughing matter. It can be annoying and embarrassing. “Excess saliva, also known as hypersalivation or sialorrhea, can be a result of excess production or decreased clearance of saliva,” said Dr. Paula Barry, physician at Penn Family and Internal Medicine Longwood. This can lead to drooling which typically is not cause for concern, but at times can be a sign of a larger health problem.

If you’re waking up each morning with a drool spot on your pillow, it may be time to find out what’s going on. Here are four causes that could be behind your excessive drooling.
