How can my son’s nasal blockage be managed?
Q: y eight years old son is suffering from nasal blockage all the time so he underwent an x-ray two years back. The doctor told me that he has a swollen gland inside his nose. Now, it is affecting his vision too. He can’t even control his tears. He was prescribed Nasonex. What should be done?
A:Your child seems to be suffering from adenoids along with eye problems. Please get a CAT scan of paranasal air sinuses done. This will show if there is any blockage in nose to cause tearing, adenoids or any congenital lesion. Anti-allergy drugs like nasonex help if the condition is allergic.
