Please could you assist me, my son turned 3 years old on the 14th June 2007 and he still drools. I would just like to know if this is reason to worry and should I take him to a ENT ?? thank you kindly

He is rather old to be drooling still and this may be due to a blocked nose and mouth breathing. If you think that this is the problem with him it is a good idea for him to be seen by an ENT specialist.
