Lymphadenoid tissue, which forms the pharyngeal tonsil in children, plays an important role in the formation of local immunity against pathogens of the infectious process. The pharyngeal tonsil as well as the palatine, tubal and lingual tonsils form a protective barrier to the penetration of an infection through the upper respiratory tract into the trachea and bronchi. Lymphadenoid tissue is functionally active in all children, on average, under the age of 7 years. In case of frequent exacerbations of viral and bacterial infections, lymphoid tissue of the pharyngeal tonsil hypertrophies, proliferates and causes many problems to the child.

Inflamed and enlarged adenoids (adenoid hypertrophy) rank high among all childhood diseases in otorhinolaryngology. The pharyngeal tonsil is normally small, but in the presence of frequent ARVI, it grows, blocks the nasopharynx and complicates the child’s nasal breathing. By the age of approximately 10 years, the adenoids are subjected to reverse development, unless irreversible changes in their structure have occurred. By this age, chronically enlarged adenoids can do much harm to the child's body.


Symptoms of adenoid hypertrophy in children

Enlarged adenoids deteriorate children’s quality of life. Excessive growth of lymphoid tissue leads to:

  • Impaired nasal breathing.
    The child has breathing difficulties, often opens his mouth and breathes through it. Nasal drops with a vasoconstrictor agent provide a temporary relief only.

  • Troubled night’s sleep and snoring.
    Due to breathing difficulties, the lack of oxygen and a constantly open mouth, the child begins to snore at night. Waking frequently throughout the night that happens because of snoring leads to the child's insufficient sleep and its accumulated deficiency. The lack of a good night's sleep adversely impacts on the child's development, coordination and activity when keeping awake. Apathy, lethargy and chronic fatigue also occur.

  • Impaired formation of the facial skeleton and occlusion.
    The adenoids can lead to deviations in the formation of the facial skeleton, malocclusion, crooked teeth.

  • Complications and consequences.
    Children with adenoids are more likely to have nervous tics, obsessive movements, headaches, neurosis-like states, and enuresis. Chronic inflammation of the pharyngeal tonsil provokes more frequent development of sinusitis, bronchitis, rhinitis, otitis, tracheitis.

How to impact on the adenoids’ condition

The adenoids are very vulnerable and susceptible to infectious processes. Due to the child's incomplete immune system, the body comes in contact with viruses and bacteria very often that affects the adenoids and inevitably leads to their hypertrophy. The peak of this problem falls on children aged 3-6. Is it possible to impact on the adenoids' condition in case of inflammation, avoid their hypertrophy, or even remove them surgically?  

The new safe and effective dietary supplement Multizan Probiotic ENT helps maintain the protective function of the pharyngeal tonsil and minimize the child’s health-related risks. This chewable probiotic contains four types of special lactobacilli that can colonize the oral cavity, tonsils and adenoids and provide their long protection from viruses and bacteria. Multizan Probiotic ENT's regular use contributes to a quicker recover during and after ARVI, helps achieve a sustained remission of the disease, inhibit the growth of adenoids and hypertrophy of the pharyngeal tonsil. 

Adenoids in Children

It is vitally important to prevent adenoid tissue from overgrowth, otherwise complications will occur, and a surgery will be required. The disease should be kept in check at the early stages of its development. For that to happen, it is necessary to prevent respiratory infections and treat them properly if they occur. When getting on the mucous membrane of the mouth and throat, probiotic lactobacilli create a protective barrier that prevents an infection from penetrating the body’s tissues and causing inflammation. Moreover, the adenoids are not exposed to a viral attack and do not hypertrophy.

3. Pleasant taste

Parents know about the importance of a medicine when treating a small child. This medicine should be liked by the baby. It is up to them to decide whether the child will take the prescribed medicine or refuse it and go into hysterics in every attempt to give the necessary medicine.
