How to reduce adenoids in a child without surgery? According to medical statistics, parents of children aged 3 to 7 face this problem too often. Since this age period traditionally falls on visiting a kindergarten, every fourth child can undergo an increase in adenoids against the background of the transferred diseases of children's groups: influenza, angina, scarlet fever, measles.
Causes of tonsillitis in children
Adenoids in children (nasopharyngeal tonsils orglands) act as an immunity barrier against the introduction of viruses into the body. Mucous tonsils in the human body are partly the first to meet pathogenic bacteria and viruses, thus forming with age human immunity. It produces a sufficient number of lymphocytes, which at the initial stage of infection can neutralize pathogens.
Being exposed to a viral infection against a catarrhaldiseases, runny nose, cough and other characteristic symptoms, adenoids increase in size. That's how they react to the onset of the inflammatory process. With complete cure, the tonsils take their normal size. However, with a constant attack of viruses on the body and nasopharynx, in particular, when the disease is observed for too short a period of time - 7 days or less, glands do not have time to come to their constant size. Being in a state of constant inflammation, adenoids simply do not restore their habitual form, but even more. In some cases, they can cover themselves with the nasopharynx almost completely.
The volume of the inflammatory process of nasopharyngealtonsils can diagnose an ENT doctor on examination with the help of a special mirror, because the inflamed glands with the naked eye are almost invisible, but they can be very troublesome. In addition to the pain in the throat of a child, the following symptomatology is observed:
- difficult breathing with an open mouth;
- problems with hearing;
- frequent rhinitis and otitis.
In connection with such painful disorders, the appearance of inflamed glands in children by medical indicators is divided into 3 degrees:
- at the first degree the puffiness of the larynx falls on the third part of the throat, keeping quiet breathing and good hearing;
- the second degree is characterized by poor breathing at night during sleep and with hearing difficulties in the afternoon as the glands grow by half the throat;
- the third degree of inflammation is revealed by difficulty breathing and hearing loss, as the size of the tonsils cover the entire nasopharynx.
Inflammation of third-degree glands in a child isthe medical term for deep breathing or chronic hyperventilation of the lungs. Her treatment is directly related to the reduction of adenoids and complete recovery. By the way, the increase in adenoids of any degree is not a blatant fact in the life and health of children, but they must be cured in order to avoid possible subsequent complications in the child's body:
- loss or loss of hearing;
- speech impairment;
- change in the shape of the nose or chin, as well as bite;
- violation of blood composition;
- urinary incontinence;
- chronic sinusitis, etc.
The problems of enlarged adenoids in children arise,as a rule, because of the constant inflammatory process against the background of protracted rhinitis and swelling of the nasopharynx. As a result, breathing becomes difficult, the nose is pinched, rhinitis or otitis occurs, and the baby begins to breathe frequently with the mouth, giving a greater load to the tonsils. Therefore, in order to start treating inflamed adenoids, it is necessary to remove the swelling of the nasopharynx, creating a natural ventilation to all organs of the respiratory system.
For some medical indicators in the medicalPractice there were cases when at the beginning of adolescence in children 12-13 years old adenoids decreased themselves. This is possible with competent treatment at the very beginning of inflammation, when enlarged adenoids of the 1 st or 2 nd degree did not particularly complicate life. However, even the presence of inflamed tonsils of the third degree does not give cause for them to be removed.
Reduce or remove adenoids by operatingintervention or using laser technology today has the right to life and is even used in cases where adenoids of the third degree already create a threat of breathing in a child. Nevertheless, this was never the only way to reduce the guttural tonsils.
The main way to fight the inflamed tonsils was and is the way to eliminate the inflammation itself and its causes.
It is the conservative treatment of adenoids that a doctor-otolaryngologist must appoint, which consists of several stages:
- medicinal effect on the localization of inflammation of the laryngeal mucosa;
- washing the surface of the tonsils;
- physiotherapeutic procedures.
Medication for inflammatorythe process of the tonsils can smooth out the irritated mucous surface, so the corresponding drugs do not act in the body, but on the adenoids themselves. Modern sprays and drops recommended by the attending physician, can facilitate the breathing of the child and lead the tonsils back to normal.
Washing of the glands removes pus from their surface. This procedure is called "cuckoo", its method is to introduce a prophylactic solution into one nostril and wash out under the influence of vacuum through another. However, it can be carried out exclusively on an outpatient basis, since with independent washing it is possible to drive pus even deeper into the larynx.
Efficacy of physiotherapy procedures for exposurevarious kinds of inflammations have been proven for a long time. Quartz of the respiratory system minimizes the inflammation of the tonsils and creates a preventive site for complete recovery.
Do not discount and folk methodsprevention and treatment of adenoids. You can reduce tonsils with thuja oil. It should be purchased in the pharmacy network, dig in 2-3 times a day for a few drops in each nostril. The recommended course is 2 weeks with a weekly break and subsequent repetition. Treatment with oil will be more effective if it is buried in the nose in the supine position on the back.
Another traditional remedy in the treatmentadenoids without surgery - it's a popular favorite of propolis. It is effective in the composition of alcohol tinctures for instillation of the nose, but for the treatment of tonsils in children it is better to mix with oil. The formula for the preparation of the solution is as follows: melt 10 parts of butter and boil 1 part of propolis in it for half an hour. Dissolved in oil propolis lubricate the nasal passages at night or moisten in it turundas and insert into the nose for 20-30 minutes. Butter can be replaced with the same proportions of vegetable oil.
Since the birth of the child to young parentsimmediately it is worth considering the fact that the most important prophylaxis of laryngeal adenoids is timely and painstaking treatment of all children's colds.
