1 Answer:

Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com

Breathing from the mouth can occur due to several possibilities, including:

the presence of polyps in the nose
deviation of the nasal septum or a bent nose
nasal congestion due to inflammation of the nose (rhinitis) either due to infection, allergies, or vasomotor rhinitis
enlarged tonsils or adenoids
Congenital anatomical abnormalities in the mouth and nose area

Breathing from the mouth is not normal and can cause various complications if left unchecked.


You should immediately bring your child to the pediatrician for further evaluation. The doctor will do an examination of your child's nose and throat to find out the possible cause of your child's frequent breathing from the mouth and provide appropriate treatment of the cause. The doctor can also refer your child to an ENT doctor if certain actions are needed.

So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
