i was actually looking for the correct term but i saw my eye doctor he told me things form on the inside of the eyelid (pepulla or a P word i forget it). These are caused by the contact constantly rubbing against the eyelid while u blink. These bumps on your eyelid also produce an extreme amount of mucus, this covering ur eye in a very uncomfortable film. Some solutions: Get daily contacts so that ur eyelid gets a smooth new surface every day and is not being scratched by a 2week old contact. Also dont sleep with your contacts in, and wear glasses around the house to give your eyes a break. I hope i was a help to you! If u feel like replying to me with the proper term for this illness or to say thanks please do so at KurtisDaigle@hotmail.com Thanks.

The defective channel causes a build up of chlorine ions in the airways cells. This higher concerntration of chlorine causes water to enter ther cell via osmosis. The water is removed from the mucus in the airway and because the chloride channel is no longer letting chlorine out the water remains in the cell and not in the mucus.

I think what possibly causes mucas build up especially first thing in the morning is eating foods and consuming drinks which contain dairy products. Drinking plenty of water will alleviate the affects and make the mucas thinner.

Studies have been performed on this topic and have demonstrated that milk will not cause mucus build up. The myth persists because of the coating sensation that occurs after drinking milk. An Internet Search on "Milk Mucus Study" will provide more details on the studies.

Chronic bronchitis is often caused by smoking. Smoking causes the bronchial tubes to become inflamed and mucus production to increase.

Your lungs are the reasons you body has Oxygen. In your lungs, we do produce mucus, which we cough up because of the cilia in our lungs. Smoking causes this cilia to not move the mucus out of your lungs which in turn causes problems.

Dark, moist environments cause mucus to be formed from bacteria and naturally by your body. It is made mostly in dark environments.

It is usually NOT a volume of mucus that causes the air flow to be blocked. The typical cause is swelling of the lining of the nasal cavities. If mucus from the middle ear is trapped in the Eustachian tube, it can also harbor an infection.

Mucus membranes trap dirt, viruses, and bacteria and keep them from entering the body. However, many people produce too much mucus when they have a cold or allergies. This causes a stuffy or runny nose.

In your lungs we have Cilia and production of mucus. The cilia beat out mucus and we either cough it out or swollow it, gross yeah but normal. Smoke cause the cilia not to move and the build up of mucus starts, therefore, in the morning since a person doesn't smoke in their sleep coughs up the mucus that builded up in their lungs.

It causes the cells that secrete mucus in the lung and airways to create a thicker, more viscous mucus that predisposes to greater infection and difficulty breathing.
