This has been a long term problem with all the classic enlarged adenoid symptoms, mouth breathing, snoring, nasal speech, sleep apnea, dulled hearing. He always sleeps with head craned back. he doesn't complain of a sore throat,but his tonsils also look enlarged. The symptoms have settled over the years until he comes into contact with a virus. There has been a horrible virus going around and his symptoms have been worst ever last few weeks, very worring as sleep apnea has started. Other than above he is healthy child although on small side. I haven't given him any medication in past. I noticed tonight his glands on neck very swollen but may have been present before agraphis nutans was given. No new symptoms present. Thank you for any help.

hi there,i am online and will be happy to answer your questionsthank you for your patience.sorry to hear about your problems. how often child gets infections.recurrent infections ( 2-3 per year ) of tonsils or adenoids and massively enlarged tonsils ( to an extent causing symptoms, which you are describing) is an indication of surgery to remove tonsils and or adenoids.i would suggest visiting an ENT doctor and get physical examination and possiblity of tonsillextomy/ or adenoidectomy. antibiotics help control the infection and pain etc but do not decrease the size or possibility of reinfection. surgery is very commonly done and is not usually associated with any complications.i hope this helps.
