hello and welcome to health care magic,

I am Dr Sriram nathan an ENT surgeon and i will try to help you out with your problem.

Your son seems to be having chronic adenotonsillitis. If he is getting recurrent infection with nose block then the best and sure way to cure him is to go for the adenotonsillectomy surgery which is the removal of adenoids and tonsils.
It is a fairly simple surgery in good hands and I have myself done more than three thousand of them! If you need any details regarding the same you can get back to me. Meanwhile you can do these:

- Give only warm food and fluids
- do not give frequent head bath
- do not get exposed to cold and cold air and water
-if he gets recurrent sneeze or cold and nose block give an antihistamine like levocetrizine to keep his symptoms under control. Your doctor will know about this
-give steam inhalation at regular intervals

hope your doubts are clear
