Brief Answer: Relax Detailed Answer: Hi Thanks for writing to healthcare magic. 1. Adenoids are enlarged nasal tonsils. They usually increase in size till 5 years and then decrease. But if it increases too much it can result in obstruction to airflow . This obstruction can cause snoring and ear infection if not treated. For your kid , you can start with neck XRay for adenoids to assess the size and degree of obstruction. Unless very severe ,In MY CLINIC i usually prescribe nasal spray with budesonide twice daily along with monteleukast 4mg once daily in the evening . If no improvement , surgical removal after 4 years will help. 2. You can add ghee or oil to each feed . Try cakes without cream, eggs if its ok. Continue peas sprouts, nuts ( protein ). MAke sure you dont add water to milk. You can give upto 3 times a day. Try variety food like poori, paratha, roti, kitchdi, etc. Avoid processed packaged foods. 3. Continue iron and calcium supplements Wishing your kid speedy recovery Regards DR XXXXXXX
