Chronic Swelling in right nostril
when you have put Torch light could be due to either
(A)Polyposis-mucosal pedunculated/sessile polyps ,may even be originating from maxillary sinus
(B)Inferior Turbinate Hypertrophy-
For the above complaints consult an ENT Surgeon for a detailed ENT assessment/Endoscopic Surgical Clearance of the above lesions from their root.
For Asthmatic Complaint Pls take him for all Baseline Blood and Urine investigations/Chest X-Ray/Pulmonary Function Tests.
For maintainance dosage regularly use brochodilator inhalations.In an acute attack pls nebulise him with locally acting Glucocorticoids and Bronchodilators.Avoid Tablets and Parenterals to prevent systemic side effects.
As the child grows ,gradually the bronchioles and bronchi grow and expand ,he will also not suffer any attack as the bronchoconstriction
will not effect air entry at all.Thatswhy childhood asthma
is less dangerous compared to adult onset asthma
Wishing your son a safe and speedy recovery.,
