My little lad of four ha had a blocked and runny nose for months now. In this time he has had an ear infection and a chest infection (two courses of antibiotics). It's making him mouth breath and snore at night and cetainly doesn't help his asthma. He has chronic rhinitis anyway but this has always been pretty well controlled with cetirizine each day. The GPs have kinda been brushing it off a bit and saying they wanted to give it time but he now seems to be developing pain in his ears again and I'm wondering if another infection's starting up. I have heard a lot about glue ear/adenoid infections/swollen tonsils and the symptoms all seem to overlap and indeed are very similar to rhinitis. Has anyone had this with their child? Any help would be gratefully received!
