What the Hell is an Adenoid Anyway?
I have three sons. Yes go ahead I have heard it before bring on the comments….My THREE Sons…they are 8, 5, and 18 months. The middle one suffers from chronic ear infections and colds due to these pesky enlarged Adenoids. Read what an Adenoid is at Kid’s Health. Years ago Doctors would have jumped and cut them out right away but in truth they are part of the immune system and help filter out all the bacteria that kids are exposed to. I am told that by the time they enter the early teen years they have usually shrunk to non-existence but what is one full time working mom to do in the meantime? The doctors just want to give him antibiotics and have me shoot steroids up his nose but I am looking for a really solution not a band aid. And hopefully something less traumatic then surgery. I have started reading about Adenoids and allergies as well as the possibility of trying to identify potential food sensitivities and eliminating them. If anyone out there has had success with this please send me a comment.
Well that is all for now folks lunch time is over.
