Enlarged Adenoids

Overview

The adenoids are a mass of soft tissue behind the nasal cavity. Like lymph nodes, adenoids are part of the immune system and are made of the same type of lymphoid tissue. The adenoids and tonsils work by trapping germs coming in through the mouth and nose.

 We all have adenoids at birth and in childhood, but as we go into adolescence, they begin to shrink. The adenoids of most people have vanished by adulthood.

Causes

Enlarged adenoids can be caused by allergies. Some children have enlarged adenoids from birth. They grow until a child is 5 years of age. Normally, they begin to shrink after around the age of 7 years. They shrink considerably in adulthood.

Inflammation of the adenoids often forms an infection. Various bacteria or viruses may cause adenoiditis.

Signs and Symptoms

Treatment

ENT specialist may suggest surgery or a short course of antibiotics or anti-allergic medicines, which gives temporary relief.

Homeopathy Treatment of Enlarged Adenoids

Homeopathy is safe and gentle for kids and helps in getting rid of enlarged adenoids permanently. Homeopathy works by strengthening the body’s immune system. Once the immunity is strong, the child becomes less susceptible to recurrent respiratory infections. Once this key factor leading to enlarged adenoids is treated, the adenoids get the time to shrink and go back to their normal size.
