Our expert says:
As mentioned previously, an ENT examination is necessary to establish possible causes, which may be multi-factorial. Only if a diagnosis is made, a possible cure can be suggested. In someone your age, it is highly likely that a causative factor will be identified. Possibilities include nasal obstruction, large tonsils, excessive lingual tonsillar hyperthrophy, allergic rhinitis and untreated gasto- oesophageal reflux disease. See an ENT for an opinion.
