Symptoms of Rhino-Sinusitis

A runny nose, a blocked nose, mouth breathing, nasal speech and snoring are common in children and often occur as a result of recurrent upper respiratory tract infections (colds), a large adenoidal and/or an allergic lining of the nose (rhinitis). Because their overlapping symptoms and signs are common, and may occur together, it can be difficult to sort out which condition is responsible. Children themselves often seem unconcerned by their symptoms.

Causes of Rhino-Sinusitis

The two most common causes of rhino-sinusitis are a large adenoid and recurrent upper respiratory tract infections or colds, particularly under the age of seven.
