Enlarged tonsils and adenoids

My 3 year-old son is suffering from enlarged tonsils and adenoids. In December 2013 he came down with tonsillitis and since then has enlarged tonsils which are affected every time he catches a cold or cough virus. He breathes a lot with his mouth open and when sleeping you can see his chest sink in.

He has been seen by an ENT consultant who ruled out sleep apnoea after tests, but I still think he sometimes does find it difficult in breathing in his sleep when he comes down with viruses and his tonsils have flared up.

A Homeopathic doctor prescribed him with cal caf and tonsilitron for 6 months. It did help a little but when he had a flu virus his tonsils flared up again. We are currently giving him a combination of Sambucus nigra 30ch and Baryta carbonica 30ch, twice a day, alternately, every four hours.

His tonsils are still enlarged and breathing problems remain. Can you please suggest anything to help us with our son.

Thank you for your response. In reply to your questions, my son is slim, very active, he is very selective with his food. He only eats weetabix for breakfast, rice and curry for dinner, and snacks are usually chocolate,biscuits, Bombay mix and some fruits. He drinks milk.
He sweats a lot on his head especially when he is sleeping.
Only health issues in family are high blood pressure, diabetes, and hay fever.
He doesn't have any problems with his bowels. Usually goes at least once a day, sometimes twice.

Can you please let us know what you mean by 1 dose? And also does he take it only 1 day or 3 days?
HussainMN 4 years ago
one dose means if the medicine is in globules, 4 or 5 globules: if it is liquid 2 or 3 drops dissolved in half a cup of water. you are to give only one dose for one day.

Thank you for your advice. We have given our child one dose of Sulphur 30 on Sunday.
It seems his heavy breathing slightly improved, but tonsil glands are still same

it will take some time for the tonsils to reduce. give him another dose on Friday.
telescope 4 years ago
We will follow your advice for Friday and let you know 3 days later again.
I had a question regarding his eating, are there any restrictions, any food he should avoid or maybe eat more of? Also is it ok for him to have ice cream?
HussainMN 4 years ago
for the time being there is no restrictions on food. he can have ice cream.

Sorry we didn't get back to you yesterday, but we did give him a second dose on Friday, but no noticeable changes this time.

Please advise further.
