Enlarged Adenoids - toddlerHello Doctor,
My toddler, 3 years & 10 months of age, was diagnosed with enlarged adenoids. She has had trouble breathing for some time and I thought it was allergies, however her ENT checked her adenoids and prescribed a topical steroid spray for 4-6 weeks. He also suggested surgery if the treatment does not work, which set off a panic in me. Please advise. Thank you in advance!!! - Yelena
