Can Nasal Polyps In 5 Year Olds Be Contagious?
Afternoon, sorry to deviate from the question. I just wanted to ask something that happened to my child. I have had nasal polyps for 5 years. My question is, can nasal polyps be transmitted to people around me? Because lately my child continuous colds. after I observed it turned out that there was a small lump in my child’s nose. is that a sign of nasal polyps? thanks in advance. and I am waiting for the answer
Nasal polyps are not contagious, in the sense that they are not infectious diseases caused by viruses or bacteria, for example. However, offspring with nasal polyps have a greater tendency to suffer from nasal polyps than other people.
Nasal polyps cause symptoms such as: nasal congestion, sneezing, runny nose, reduced sense of smell, facial pain, snoring, headache, decreased appetite.
Nasal polyps are abnormal growths of tissue inside the nose, the consistency is soft, painless and not cancerous. We recommend that you bring your child to the doctor to be checked whether the lump is a polyp or not. If indeed nasal polyps, the doctor will provide therapy according to your child's condition.
May be useful.
