Drooling during sleep

I have never suffered drooling before. But since the last few months i have been drooling during sleep. This only happens occasionally. Is this a serious concern? What are the causes and treatments? I am not on any kind of medication currently.

Hi there...there are many causes for drooling of saliva like neuromuscular paralysis of muscles in the oral cavity, allergies, throat infection, posture of sleeping, increased salivation. Mostly common it is due to the posture. Try to sleep face upwards everyday. Also consult a nearby general physician or neurologist or ent specialist for further evaluation.
