The reasons for the appearance of adenoids. The enlarged pharyngeal tonsil, which acts as a barrier to the entry of bacteria, turns into a focus of chronic infection. This leads to an increase in the body's susceptibility to various foreign agents - both bacterial and non-bacterial origin, the so-called allergens.
Chronic infection has a general toxic effect on the body. The enlarged pharyngeal tonsil blocks the flow of air through the openings in the nasopharynx. Nasal breathing is replaced by breathing through the mouth, while the incoming air is no longer humidified, warmed or purified. This provokes the development of frequent colds: sinusitis, tonsillitis (tonsillitis), pharyngitis, laryngitis, tracheitis.
