Q.

Snoring


My son who is five has very big tonsils. And when he sleeps
he snore very loudly like an adult. And when he is sick
(having tonsilitis (sp?) You would not like to see the inside
of his mouth.
How can we overcome the snoring? Can the pillows being
advertised work?

The best advice would be to have it evaluated by an ENT surgeon and to consider removal of the adenoids.
