Your child is having allergic rhinitis
associated with adenoid
hypertrophy. Adenoid hypertrophy can worsen during an attack of cold
. First of all your child has to be symptomatically better before going for surgery. You can request your doctor to start her on steroid
nasal drops, can continue antihistaminic. Once the child is symptomatic you can get the surgery done. I do not think you can wait for the surgery till five years of age. If the symptoms are really troublesome surgery can definitely be done after two years of age, as the function of adenoids
will get over by the age of two years.
