My 9 yr old daughter has difficult breathing when asleep and foams at her mouth. she has nasal polops which we believe might be causing the problem. what can we do for her? would this also be the cause of bed wetting?

Difficulty breathing can mean a lot of things. Some clarification is needed. You need an evaluation by your pediatrician first, who can then provide referrals to Ear Nose Throat or Pulmonology if needed.

Need to see an ENT soon. Once polyp problem is cleared it is possible for the bed wetting to improve too. But they are not necessarily related. You have to wait and see.

A sleep evaluation and testing should be considered. The nasal polyps warrant further evaluation including allergy testing. A nasal steroid is often helpful. Please request an ENT consult, sweat test and IgE, allergy testing. A virtual consult with Healthtap is available. Watch for daytime sleepiness.
