Treatments for the child to stop breathing through the mouth
One solution is a sinus operation. However, long studies are being studies of treatments based on inhalers with topical steroids (beclomethasone dipropionate, triamcinolone, budesonide, mometasone furoate, etc). The mometasone inhaler is the best choice because it has fewer side effects because it does not penetrate the blood. Therefore, consult the doctor for this type of steroid, as has been recommended by many otolaryngologists.
The intranasal of this type are also called corticosteroids and some studies claim that metabolizes in the liver by 50%, so the effect on the body will be minimal and will not affect the growth or intellectual abilities of children. It also has no odor or taste, so it will be easier to provide.
