PAEDIATRIC ENT

ENT Services & Treatments For Children

Young children and toddlers have an increased vulnerability to ENT issues because of the smaller airways and developing organs. This leaves them more open to infections and other conditions.

Furthermore, the ear, nose and throat are critical to a child’s learning & development, with sleep, listening and pronunciation being some of the key priorities for many children during their formative years.

Common Paediatric ENT Conditions

Throughout his years of practice, Dr Lau has helped many patients overcome nasty ear conditions, providing both parents and children with comfort and peace of mind.

Some common paediatric ENT conditions that Dr Lau treats are:

  • Impacted Ear Wax
  • Allergies
  • Sinus Issues
  • Sleep Disorders
  • Snoring & Sleep Apnea
  • Glue Ear/Middle Ear Effusion/Otitis Media with Effusion
  • Outer Ear Infections
  • Middle Ear Infections
  • Spontaneous Nosebleeds/Epistaxis
  • Ruptured Eardrum
  • Chronic Runny Nose
  • Enlarged Adenoids
  • Allergic Rhinitis

When Should You Bring Your Child To A Paediatric ENT Specialist?

Spotting an ENT condition in a child is much harder than it is in an adult – simply because children may not be able to accurately express their symptoms as well as adults.

These are some common symptoms that children display when they are suffering from ENT conditions:

  • Unexplained fever
  • Irritability
  • Difference in behaviour
  • Difficulty in learning
  • Delayed speech development
  • Frequent colds or runny nose
  • Constant sniffling in the day
  • Disturbed, restless sleep
  • Speech or language delay
  • Attention deficit
  • Speech impediments
  • Tugging at the ear

If your child is exhibiting any of the above behaviours, it is recommended that a consultation with a ENT specialist be scheduled for an in-depth investigation.
