Snoring is common in children.
This is caused usually by a relative
blockage of the airway. This sets
about vibrations during breathing
resulting in snoring.

The more obstructed the passage is
the louder the snoring.

Snoring is made worse by infections
and allergies. In some cases, there is
structural issues like enlarged
turbinates (tissues in the nose), large
adenoids and tonsils.

The commonest cause in children are
allergic rhinitis, sinusitis and enlarged
adenoids and tonsils. Correction of the
underlying conditions result in
reversing the snoring and sleep
