Recently I have noticed excessive saliva occurring in the right of my face. It seems to seep to my lips intermittently during the morning and then stops.

Dear Customer, Thanks for providing quick additional information.
I can understand your concern.
In medical terms it is called as Drooling
It is unintentional loss of saliva from the mouth.
It can occur with these conditions-
-Heartburn or GERD ,
-Poisoning (especially by pesticides),
-Swollen adenoids.
It may also be caused by nervous system disorders that make it hard to swallow.
Any disorder affecting nerves associated with the mouth or throat may cause such symptoms.
If this is occurring due to- chronic sinusitis, or problems with tonsils, adenoids, or a throat infection, an ENT specialist would be the one most likely to be able to help.
You should Limit sugary foods.
You can start with your Family doctor and they can advise you to consult a Specialist doctor.
I would recommend that you visit your primary doctor for evaluation and get it managed.
Good luck and take care.
Please let me know how I can be of further assistance.
My goal is to provide you with excellent service – if you feel you have gotten anything less, please reply back, I am happy to address follow-up questions.
