My 10 year old girl snores is that normal?

My 10 year old girl snores is that normal?

Tonsils OSA: She may have large tonsils causing some narrowing of the airway and thus snoring at hight. I am more concerned if she is overweight, because that can cause another level of obstruction.

Any pause of more than 20 seconds is definitely not normal.Is there a " snap" as the airway opens? ...Read more

Is aptheous ulcers in children linked with abcesses on gums on a 10 year old girl like her pediatric consultant has said?

Aphthous ulcers: It's hard to comment on your question because first, we cannot examine your child and secondly we can't be 100% sure exactly why your "pediatric consultant" actually said. Even intelligent, loving individuals sometimes don't hear and repeat everything accurately. The cause of true aphthous ulcers is not fully understood. It most likely is related to a combination of stress and local irritation. ...Read more

Ocassionally, they even occur without a known factor. There are some treatments available, including Retin-A and pulsed dye laser, which can be used in combination (read more about these below).

I have a 10 year old girl who has been taken loratadine for a week and now she says she that her head hurts can I give tylenol (acetaminophen) or motrin?

I have a 10 year old girl who has been taken loratadine for a week and now she says she  that her head hurts can I give tylenol (acetaminophen) or  motrin?

Yes but: I suspect that her headache may be from nasal congestion which loratadine has no effect on. Consider trying a nasal steroid for a few days and see if this works better. Yes you can give her Tylenol (acetaminophen) or Motrin but it will not be that effective if the nasal congestion is causing the problem. If no response to nasal steroid, see your doctor. ...Read more
