only for severe deviation of nasal septum needs surgical intervension like Septoplasty, that too after 14 years of age, as mid facial bone growth is complete only by that time, and child can have recurrent deviation if surgery is done before that.
Don`t worry about surgery, if symptoms improve with corticosteroid nasal spray problem is not with deviated nasal septum, it is due to enlarged adenoids
