  • Asthma
  • Nasal growths (polyps)
  • Allergies to dust, mold or pollen
  • A weak immune system
  • Exposure to pollutants, such as airborne chemicals
  • A condition that affects the way mucus moves within your respiratory system, such as cystic fibrosis
  • Exposure to irritants, such as cigarette smoke
