Very large adenoids will block air passage in both the nose and the ears. This obstruction of normal air ventilation can lead to both sinusitis and otitis media.
-Frequent ear infections
-Mouth breathing, difficult breathing.
-runny nose or nasal congestion.
-Restlessness while sleeping.
Adenoid hypertrophy is the growth of the adenoid tonsil. They can obstruct airflow enough so that breathing through the nose requires an uncomfortable effort and inhalation occurs through an open mouth. It also affects the voice as well as hearing.
