Proper treatment of adenoiditis in children
Almost every common cold, acute respiratory disease or ARVI is accompanied by a runny nose. This is a natural process, so the body is self-cleaning, but at the same time a runny nose requires increased attention. Running rhinitis can develop into a complication like adenoiditis. If the time does not respond, then treatment of adenoiditis in children may result in surgery.
Adenoids consist of lymphatic tissue, its cells participate in the formation of immunity. Therefore, today few doctors insist on their inevitable removal, even if palatine tonsils are very often inflamed.
If the adenoid growths have reached quite large sizes and nasal breathing due to this becomes practically impossible, the hearing worsens, bronchitis appears, then there is no way to do without surgical intervention. But if the adenoid tissue is inflamed and after the inflammation is eliminated, relief comes, then there is no need for surgery.
The decision on how to treat adenoiditis in children is taken individually. Indications for surgery are certain symptoms, not the extent of the disorder. For example, in one adolescent with grade II adenoiditis, breathing is not difficult, while the other has a worsening of hearing in cases of a first degree disorder. The operation is appointed in the case when doctors perform a full examination of the child and test various types of treatment. And only after making sure that none of them is ineffective, after consulting with several specialists it is necessary to decide on the operation.
Treatment of adenoiditis in children
Even if an operation is to be performed, adenoids should still be treated. The disease can be acute or chronic. When supercooled, with viral and infectious diseases, the child may have purulent mucous discharge, which flow down the pharyngeal wall, while breathing becomes difficult and body temperature rises. Inflammation from the nasopharynx can pass to the auditory tube, and on it to get into the ear. This can lead to the development of acute otitis media. Most often at an early age there is acute adenoiditis in children. Treatment in this case is carried out by washing with special solutions, instillation of anti-inflammatory, antimicrobial and antiallergic drugs. Therapy is aimed at restoring breathing. Then prescribe antibiotic therapy.
After suffering ailment, chronic adenoiditis in children may appear. Treatment in this situation includes the use of vasoconstrictor sprays and drops, as well as disinfectants.
Treatment of adenoiditis in children involves surgery, if the inflammation is neglected, the child suffocates at night, constantly coughs and feels constant fatigue. The operation is called adenotomy. This procedure lasts only 1-2 minutes. Do it under local or general anesthesia. After the operation, there may be a fever, vomiting blood clots - this is within normal limits. During rehabilitation, it is recommended that acute, hot and rough food be excluded, as well as physical activity. It is necessary to use astringent and drying products.
For any type of adenoiditis, immunity should be strengthened. Often and long walks in the fresh air, air a room and daily spend wet cleaning.
