Common Pediatric ENT Problems
Ear infections – Ear infections in children are about as common as a cold and are typically located in the middle ear and can cause pain, discomfort, fever, and even hearing loss. Typical initial treatment is antibiotic medication
Sore throats – Children can have a sore throat due to tonsillitis (inflammation of the tonsils) or pharyngitis (inflammation of the pharynx). Both conditions can be treated with anti-inflammatory medication if an infection ensues
Sinusitis – Sinusitis is an inflammation of your sinus linings and can lead to coughing, nasal discharge, nasal infections and blockages. Initial treatments typically include nasal sprays, nasal rinses, antibiotics (if infection is caused by bacteria), or allergy medication
Hay fever – Hay fever is also known as allergic rhinitis and can cause include nasal congestion, a clear runny or stuffy nose, sneezing, and watery eyes. You can also experience a cough from post nasal drip in addition to loss of smell and taste. Initial treatments typically include nasal antihistamine sprays and pills
