My 2-1/2 years old son has swollen nose membrane or enlarge adenoid

Hello, My son is 2 1/2 y/o and his having problem breathing while sleeping and while he is awake. He snores and breath through his mouth. His Dr. give him NOSANEX and FLOVENT but both did not work. Also when my wife and I looked inside his nose, we can see the membrane swollen and blocking the air way passage. Can enlarged adenoids cause the nose membrane to get swollen. Currently he lost appetite and not wanting to sleep. He is also very irritated.

Hi,

When you see through the nose of the child the membrane like thing which you noticed could be hypertrophied inferior turbinates. Get an x-ray of the adenoids done. According to the symptoms you have described it can be a hypertrophied adenoids which needs to be managed surgically. Any more doubts you are welcome.

Regards
Dr. Naveen Kumar
