Nasal with a squeaky wheezy noise

0

I have noticed recently that my daughter has been experiencing a squeaky wheezy noise when he talks. It is not coming from her chest and clearly is originating from her nose. Inhalers aren’t working to resolve the issue however. Any idea of what this may be and how it may be treated?

Hi there,

Thanks for your question.

When we think of a stuffy or congested nose, we often view mucus as the prime culprit. However, in most cases, the nose becomes congested when the tissues lining it become swollen, causing inflamed blood vessels.

Nasal congestion can affect hearing and speech. Significant congestion may interfere with sleep and can often be the root cause for sleep apnea.
