Dear worried Mom

Your daughter has most likely experienced enlargement of her adenoids because of the infection. The blocked nose can also be due to the primary infection, and this may take up to six weeks to clear. Your GP can suggest medication after an examination, I can not suggest treatment without an examination. From a natural point of view, it would be safe to suggest something like Saline nosedrops, if this does not work, you need to consult your doctor.
