Adenoids in children: treatment, prevention and recommendations of Dr. Komarovsky
Problems with adenoids occur in many children. From this pathology affects 5-8 percent of girls and boys under 15 years old. They are manifested in at least half of children with diseases of the upper respiratory tract.
We will talk about adenoids in children, how to recognize the symptoms of their inflammation, how they manifest, how to treat the disease in a child, whether it is necessary to delete and how, whether it is possible to do without surgery only with drug treatment.
This disease is characterized by hypertrophy of the nasopharyngeal tonsil due to the proliferation of lymphoid tissue. In adults, almost never occurs. Children often suffer from this disease: so their the immune system is protected from the effects of negative environmental factors, penetrating through the respiratory tract, primarily from pathogens.
Most often from problems with adenoids suffer preschool age from three years. There are cases in adolescents under 15 years. And recently the number of very young children with this pathology is growing.
In children, the symptoms of nasopharyngeal tonsil are divided into two types: hypertrophy and its inflammation, called adenoiditis (adenoids). In the first case, if the tissue has grown very much, surgical intervention will be required. In the second case, the amygdala will decrease if the inflammation is removed, and it is not necessary to remove it.
