It's a very annoying symptom.  Helpful article.

Excellent work

Thanks Raja

I have not had this happen but know other people who have. You outline the issue well here.

The natural cures here are not actionable. Me as a reader wouldn't know how to use those natural remedies. I guess I just have to ask an expert.

"Sound" information and good research. My husband, a musician, is plagued by this. Thanks for the remedies.
