Why Do My Eyes Produce Excess Mucus?

Answer by Charlaine T. on Mar 3 2014

You have an eye infection which might be as a result of you not cleaning your lenses properly. And yes, it is something to be concerned about.
Do you sleep with your contacts on? This could be a reason.
Anyway, you should see your eye doctor for proper diagnosis and a solution, since there is not sufficient information to determine the exact reason why you're having this problem.

What disease/illness causes excess mucus/salia in the throat so that the victim has trouble breathing?

What disease/illness causes excess mucus/saliva production in the throat so that the victim has trouble breathing?

Excess mucus means the body is trying to get rid of something like a virus (cold or flu). Too much dairy can thicken the mucus and make it seem like you are choking on it. Coughing it up is the best thing.

Excess saliva would be entirely different and could be caused by lots of things. I don't know that you could have so much that you felt like you were choking though.

Is this just a curiosity question or do you have this problem?

Why do my cocker spanials eyes keep producing a mucus so much that they needs to be cleaned twice daily?

My cocker spanials eyes produce a mucus similar to someone that may have alergies in there eyes. He also drinks water constantly, he will drink two large bowls a day. Sometimes he drinks so much he will vomit some back up.

Cockers often have runny eyes, but because he's also drinking copious amounts of water, please take him to the vet. That can be caused by diabetes, thyroid problems and other things.

Runny eyes may be normal, but if it's happening more than usual, that is something to check with the vet about.

Can swallowing excessive amounts of mucus somehow cause my stomach to bloat?

Even if it is because I might be swallowing additional air along with the mucus? I have allergies which cause me to produce excessive mucus amounts and it trickles down my throat to a point where I have no choice but to swallow it. Can that make you bloat or mess with your digestion in any way?

OK lets start at the beginning.
Mucus is you bodies way of getting things like bactria out of your eyes, nose mouth and lungs. Bacteria gives off methane gas as part of its normal life pattern.
Bacteria that thrive in mucus can give you the problem of bloat.

So yes your problem could be the extra mucus.

Solution, you can't stop the mucus so try to stop the cause of the mucus. Wash you hands allot, check your bed for feathers, mites, dust etc.
Generally clean up your life and keep away from smoke pollution and things that bother your mucus membranes.

Try drinking Orange juice and lemonade they help break up the food source the bacteria are using to make the gas. Chemically hot curry is well know to clear up stomach bacteria.

What causes snot and how can there be so much of it?

I have the swine flu and there seems to be no end to the amount of snot coming out my nose. It's so gross! Where in blazes does it all come from? Well, sinse I have alot of free time while I am recovering I thought I'd stop by Y!A and see if any of you folks could answer my question. Thanks!

"Snot" is just another word for mucus. When bits of stuff get stuck in your nose hairs, it’s the mucus or snot that surrounds the stuff and traps it.

Mucus is made by mucus membranes. Your body has mucus membranes in all sorts of places: the stomach, intestines, nose, lungs, eyes, mouth, and the urinary tract all contain mucus membranes that secrete mucus.

When you have a cold, the linings of your nose and / or throat swell. Thick, clear liquid called mucus forms and its purpose is to wash away the germs. The mucus builds up and blocks the air passages. This is what causes a stuffy nose and a cough.

what is snail snot made of?

mucus; phlegm

Snail/Slugs' bodies are made up mostly of water and are prone to desiccation. They must generate protective mucus to survive. In drought conditions they hide under fallen logs, rocks, plants, and planters in order to help retain body moisture.

Slugs produce two types of mucus: one which is thin and watery, and another which is thick and sticky. Both are hygroscopic. The thin mucus is spread out from the centre of the foot to the edges. The thick mucus spreads out from front to back.

Mucus is very important to slugs because it helps them move around, and contains fibres which prevent the slug from sliding down vertical surfaces. Mucus also provides protection against predators and helps retain moisture. Some species use slime cords to lower themselves on to the ground, or to suspend a pair of slugs during copulation.
