When to consult a Pediatric ENT Specialist?

In case your child is suffering from infection of Tonsils and Adenoids, Tongue Tie, Glue Ear and Grommets, Preauricular Pits and Sinuses, consult Dr. Shree Rao, the best Pediatric ENT specialist in Hyderabad

A sore throat or difficulty in swallowing coupled with fever can be the symptoms of tonsillitis in kids. If the condition lasts more than 48 hours, your child would need a doctor’s supervision.

A child facing difficulties while breathing through the nose and having to breath through the mouth instead are the major adenoids symptoms. With a pediatrician's help your child can defeat minor as well as major symptoms of adenoids.

If your child has difficulties in lifting or moving the tongue from side to side then medical attention is needed. Tongue tie or ankyloglossia requires a harmless surgery by a pediatrician.

Signs like talking loudly or watching television at booming volume or recurring pain in the ear are the common symptoms of glue ear in children. With the right medication and diagnosis your child will have a speedy recovery.

A tiny hole in front of one or both ears of your child with swelling and fluid discharge are the indicators of preauricular pit/sinus. Consulting a pediatrician will help your child with the right treatment.

Pediatric ENT FAQs

A surgery is recommended if the child has the following symptoms: -

  • Difficulty in swallowing
  • High fever
  • Swollen tonsils
  • Sore throat or pain in throat
  • Bad breath 
  • Difficulty in talking
  • Restless sleeping patterns
  • Constant headaches

A child over the age of three years can have tonsil surgery as the risk of bleeding and dehydration is less.

Children with adenoids may display the following symptoms -

  • Having severe trouble while breathing through nose
  • Snoring issues
  • Breathing through the mouth
  • Runny nose with mucus discharge
  • Suffering from ear infections
  • Having sinus problems

When the adenoids don’t shrink with age, your child will suffer from enlarged adenoids. In case of enlarged adenoids, your child will have difficulty in breathing through the nose as his airway will get blocked. Due to swollen adenoids your child may stop breathing at times during sleep. Snoring, congestion, bad breath, ear problems and sinus are some of the effects of enlarged adenoids.

Untreated tongue tie can cause a lot of problems in a growing child some of which are -

  • Incompetence in chewing food
  • Speech disorientation
  • Hindrance in speech development
  • Hassles in maintaining dental hygiene
  • Jaw pains
  • Migraines
  • Lack of self confidence
  • Complications in behavior

In case of a baby under three months, a local anesthetic gel is used while general anesthesia is avoided. A general anesthesia is used for babies and children above 3 months.

To cure glue ears, grommets are used. It is a small tube that is placed in a child’s ear during glue ear surgery. The grommet drains the fluid away and keeps the child’s eardrum open. Post-surgery the grommet should fall out on its own within 6 to 12 months as the child’s ear recovers.

Glue ear can cause temporary hearing impairment. An extended period of hearing loss can lead to speech deterioration and complications in language development in children.

If the child suffers from chronic cysts or infections, it is suggested that the preauricular pit be removed by surgery. Otherwise, the child doesn’t have to undergo a surgery if it is not repetitive.

When a child’s ear doesn’t develop fully during birth, he or she is born with a preauricular pit. Preauricular pit is a common condition and poses no serious threat until it shows symptoms like swelling, redness, fever or fluid discharge.
