Adenoids ; snoring. Hello, when we prescribe intranasal steroids, we are doing so to help reduce swelling within the nasal cavity.

When they swell again this is usually from allergy. If he is having snoring and bedwetting, daytime tiredness, behavior or concentration problems, options are to keep him on the nasonex, (mometasone) to have the adenoids removed.
