1 Answer:

Dear Veri,


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.
