Our expert says:
I think you should urgently consult the ENT specialist. A hoarse voice in an infant is always abnormal. This together with severe breathing difficulties is a cause for concern. The ENT will assess the following as possible causes:
1. Enlarged adenoids causing nasal obstruction, a runny nose, persistent infections and difficulty in breathing at night. If she is snoring she is likely to have enlarged adenoids.
2. The larynx (voice box) needs to be assessed. There are many conditions and infections that can cause airway obstruction.
Go and see your ENT.
