Nasal blockage. Blood drooling and snoring. Had minor surgery. Suggest me a good medicine?

Hi Doc., my name is Sina Morenigbade. I started having this nasal problem when I was 11 years old. it started with blood drooling from my nose . However, after some time, I started to have nose blockage thereby forcing breath out of a free nostril . In one word, one of my nostrils is blocked at any given time which results in embarrassing noise when I sleep. I complained to an ENT Doctor and he did a minor surgery on me. This problem still persists till today. I have had prescriptions of nasal sprays without any change. It has also resulted in heavy snoring for me even though I had a small frame i.e little body mass. My concern is my children that have same problem and have used nasal sprays as prescribed by Doctors without any useful result. My daughter on waking up each morning would force air out uncontrollably with serious irritating and embarrasing noise. Kindly help me and whatever drug you prescribe for me, I am willing to buy. Thank you.

Hi and thanks for the query,
The causes of snoring will be different for you and your children.
The causes of snoring in children are usually enlarged adenoids and tonsils, rarely a deviated septum.
Mild snoring does not cause too much trouble in children and will go away once they grow up.
If snoring is seriously disrupting their sleep , waking them up through the night and causing day time drowsiness then they may need surgical removal of adenoids or tonsils or both.
There is no medicine to cure snoring.
Regards, Dr Kishori.
