my dauhgter is having adenoids
| Jul 02, 2016
Hi Neetu, All babies are born with adenoid which is a tissue and not a medical condition. Only the swollen adenoid causes problems like ear infection and difficulty in breathing etc. The adenoid tissue will be in the nasal cavity to trap the bacteria while inhaling. As the child grows, adenoid disappears. Swollen adenoid is also very common when adenoid gets infected. Usually doctors prescribe antibiotics. The surgery is needed only when the child gets recurrent infection and if adenoid swelling doesn't subside even with medication. I have heard homeopathic treatment is effective but it takes time for the condition to improve. A word of caution - Avoid the sprays with steroids such as metaspray as it has side effects like involuntary eye twitching. It was prescribed by the doctor for my son. But we discontinued after he had eye twitching. It took a while for the medicine to leave his system. Take precautions not to expose your child to pollution and any allergens if she is allergic. Ensure she doesn't get frequent cold.
