Hello and welcome to health care magic. Thanks for your query.
Infection of the adenoid tissue is very common in childhood. At the age of about 6 or 7 years, the adenoid tissue begins to shrink; and by the age of about 15 years, this tissue disappears or reduces to a barely noticeable mass. In some children under 5 years of age, the adenoids swell up as a result of frequent upper respiratory tract
Acute adenoid infection
can be treated conservatively by antibiotics, adequate hydration and bed rest.
But frequent adenoiditis
can block the eustacian tube and leads to middle ear infection
In such cases its advised to go for surgical management i.e adenoidectomy
Wish you all the best
