we know noses

Children are fascinated by their noses. They want to find out what’s up there, often by sticking their fingers or other objects up their noses.

Of course, the nose has an important function. Not only does it help us sense the world – from fragrant flowers to dangerous smoke – but it’s also a filter for the air we breathe. When that filter gets clogged by allergies, infections or a misplaced toy, it can become irritated and runny.

A nose that is constantly irritated and running is a pain for both you and your child. If your little one is experiencing any of these problems, call ENT Care for Kids. We know noses and we know kids. Both get special treatment here.

Commonly treated conditions include:
  • Nasal congestion or stuffiness
  • Mouth breathing
  • Enlarged adenoids
  • Allergies
  • Nasal polyps
  • Sinus infections
  • Recurrent nosebleeds
  • Foreign objects in the nose
  • Choanal atresia
Sometimes, nose problems require procedures, either to help us determine the problem or to perform surgery to make it better.
Some of the procedures we perform include:
  • Fiberoptic nasal endoscopy (generally performed in the office)
  • Adenoidectomy
  • Turbinate reduction
  • Sinus surgery
  • Nasal polyp removal
  • Removal of foreign objects (generally performed in the office)
