Maybe temporarily avoid dairy products which make mucous and more congestion. ...Read more

2yo constant stuffy nose severity varies snores ENT says no to tonsils/adn to be Removed yet parents have had both removed y wait? Is it from daycare

Consider surgery: If your child is constantly mouth breathing or has pauses in breathing greater than 10-15 consideration should be made to remove his adenoids and if his tonsils are blocking his breathing, then also his tonsils.
