Beginner sax- Foam in throat?

Hi, I've been playing sax for around 3 months now and I have noticed when I'm playing for more than half an hour I'm getting a thick foam / mucus in the back of my throat (sorry TMI) is this normal? I'm focusing on diaphragmatic breathing but every now and again I just feel really congested!

    I think that would be a question for a medical doctor. Are you a pollen or dust allergy sufferer? Is it mucus related to breathing or swallowing?

    If swallowing, maybe having something to sip on may help. Those are my guesses.
