Snoring leads to hyperactivity and sleepiness

Experts found that parents of children with snoring often blame their children’s young age and physical deficiency for their children’s problems such as not sleeping soundly, breathing more by mouth, sweating, wetting the bed, and daytime sleepiness.

According to a woman from Qingyuan, her son, who is 5 years old this year, has been very active since he was two years old. He feels very difficult to take with him and doesn’t listen to what he says. He often sleeps at night sweating, breathes with his mouth open, snores, wakes up easily and has a small appetite. Compared with his peers, he looks much thinner. Before, after examination in the local hospital, the children had received sex therapy, but the effect was not obvious. At the doctor’s suggestion, the parents took the child to the hospital for re examination and found that the child’s adenoid hypertrophy blocked the posterior nostril.

Experts say that children’s hyperactivity, night sweats, mouth breathing, daytime sleepiness and other conditions are not caused by physical deficiency, but by adenoid hypertrophy blocking the nostrils, leading to poor breathing, causing children to be irritable, hyperactive, irritable, and sometimes aggressive.

Nasal symptoms mislead parents

As for the children’s frequent mouth breathing, parents said that it was caused by nasal congestion, but they didn’t catch a cold or have a runny nose. Why would they have nasal congestion? This is what parents of children wonder.

Expert students said that nasal symptoms are only one of the local symptoms of adenoid hypertrophy, but most parents are often confused, they think the child is a cold or rhinitis. It is understood that adenoid hypertrophy can cause ear, nose, throat and other symptoms. Adenoid hypertrophy is often accompanied by rhinitis, nasal obstruction, runny nose and other symptoms. Adenoid fat causes obstruction of eustachian tube pharynx, which will lead to hearing loss and tinnitus, and sometimes purulent otitis media.

Adenoid hypertrophy should be treated in time

Experts said that the parents of children with adenoid hypertrophy after learning that the child is, the first reaction all hope to use drug treatment, but the effect of drug treatment is very limited, the symptoms of relief, relieve little effect, in addition, children still need to be very careful medication.

Adenoid hypertrophy is not single, and it is associated with many ENT diseases. When conservative treatment is ineffective, surgical treatment should be selected in time. Once the disease is delayed, it will become the focus of systemic disease. It can cause recurrent sinusitis, hearing loss, sometimes secretory otitis media, sleep and snore with respiratory disorders, which has a great negative impact on physical and intellectual development.
