Detailed Answer:

Thanks for your query.

Snoring in kids can be due to various causes. I would like to know your son's age and some details to help you better. Does your son have repeated cold or cough? From when has he started snoring.

Usually respiratory tract infections and tonsils or adenoids can cause snoring. If that is the case I would suggest you get him examined by an ENT specialist.

Any allergies/ cold weather can also cause snoring.

Some home remedies are:
- Remove the possible allergen such as dust/pets etc.
- Treatment for sinus/tonsils/adenoids.
- Elevate your child's head or mattress at night with a special pillow which can help relieve congestion and clear up their nasal passages.
- If he is sleepy/drowsy in the day due to no proper sleep at night it can be due to obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) and I would suggest you meet a sleep specialist/pulmonologist.

I hope this answered your query.
