Runny nose is the most frequent disease in children. There are several prerequisites for that:
- Particular design and qualities of the nose, nasopharynx and sinuses;
- Immature immune system;
- Numerous contacts with other children (at kindergartens, at schools, etc.);
- Enlarged adenoids or chronic adenoiditis;
- Frequent allergic diseases.
Runny nose can be a symptom of such diseases as maxillary sinusitis (inflammation of maxillary sinuses), adenoiditis (chronic inflammation of adenoids or pharyngeal tonsil), allergic rhinitis (caused by pollen or other allergens), infectious rhinitis (caused by viruses or bacteria), etc.
Children aged from 2 to 10 usually have inflammation of adenoids as a cause for the runny nose.
Adenoids themselves cannot be a reason for the disease because they are found in all children of any age, and are needed for protection from the hazardous environment. What matters, is the size of adenoids and whether they have chronic inflammation. Treatment (either conservative or surgical) is required only for the cases of chronic inflammation and when adenoids are enlarged.
Parents can suspect that their child has problems relating to adenoids when the following signals are noted:
- Obstruction of nasal breathing; the child regularly or constantly cannot breath through the nose, sleeps or keeps awake with the open mouth, or the child wheezes or snores during sleep;
- Frequent colds (including rhinitis, maxillary sinusitis, quinsy, common cold, pharyngitis, tracheitis, etc.);
- Diminished hearing; the child regularly asks to repeat what has been said, cannot hear well when addressed or does not react at all;
- Frequent inflammations of the middle ear;
- The child speaks nasally or there is recognized a language dysfunction.
