Tonsils

Hi

My LB (will be 3yr in DEC) was sick on Friday and the Dr was concerned as he gets sick to often with his throat. He suggested we see an ENT to check out his TONSILS.
He did however mention that they only recommed a child from 4yrs for their TONSILS to be removed.

Please advise.

Dear Pisces,

Tonsils are of value until the age of 4 , but certain children most defenitely require earlier removal. If your child constantly suffers from tonsillitis, this may also cause damage, in which case a tonsillectomy is indicated.
Discuss this with your ENT.
