Adenoids are nothing but lymphoid tissue in the back part of nose. They are more active in children and defend against infections traveling in air breathed in through nostrils. In the process, they become swollen. Your daughter is suffering from allergy. It is most likely related to dust, pollen etc. The child is suffering from allergy i.e. bronchial asthma. Enlargement of adenoids is also due to allergy and occasional infection. Adenoid enlargement will not influence bronchial asthma in any way. Your child's bronchial asthma will usually reduce in frequency and intensity as she grows older. Though she may not be absolutely free from asthma, she will surely have less and less of it. Prevention of exposure allergy causing agents like dust, pollen, dry weather, some foods like eggs or fish (if applicable) and undue strain, eating very cold foods etc should be avoided to prevent attacks of asthma.
