Dear Aravind
does your daughter gets mouth breathing and snoring at night. usually children suffer common cold 2 to 3 times a year. if its regularly not subsiding you have to consult ent surgeon to rule out is adenoid enlarged in most of the case which happens. usually it get subsides by age of 5 years. another possibilty might be allergy of living in bangalore which you cant avoid. and another thing is most common cause of allergy is fro dust and mites from home. keep windows close and wash her bedsheets once fortnight in hot water and dry in hot sun try to find is she get eating after particular food avoid those things.

Hi Bhandari,

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.
