Adenoiditis significantly impacts one’s quality of life by the inflammation of the adenoids, especially when left untreated. The adenoids are small pads of tissue at the back of the throat and above the tonsils. They play a role in the immune system, but can unfortunately become infected themselves. The symptoms of adenoiditis can be uncomfortable and disruptive. However, effective treatments exist to manage this condition. Whether you’re seeking relief for yourself or a loved one, understanding the available treatments is a crucial step towards your treatment plan. At NJ ENT, our team of experienced Ear, Nose, and Throat (ENT) specialists is committed to providing informative and personalized care for individuals dealing with adenoiditis.

Adenoiditis Causes

Infection is one of the main adenoiditis causes, but is not the only one. Anything that can cause the adenoids to inflame can be considered a cause of adenoiditis. Here are the most common causes:

– Bacterial or viral infections

– Exposure to irritants


– Immune system disorders

Adenoiditis Symptoms

Some of adenoiditis symptoms are similar to other issues. It is important to take note of all your symptoms so your doctor can accurately assess your condition to create the best treatment plan for you. Here are some symptoms of adenoiditis to take note of:

– Sore throat

– Difficulty breathing through the nose and mouth breathing

– Snoring

– Frequent infections

– Swollen glands

Ear problems

– Voice changes

Adenoiditis Treatment

Adenoiditis treatments often include prescriptions such as antibiotics and steroid nasal sprays. There are at-home solutions to manage symptoms while taking these prescriptions, such as salt water gargles and over-the-counter pain relievers. It is important to note that these at-home solutions are not adenoiditis treatments, they only help the pain associated with it. In severe cases, surgery to remove the adenoids may be required to fully treat adenoiditis. This is only used for cases that are resistant to all other treatment options.

Reviews of Our ENT Services

After seeing my fifth ENT, Dr. Undavia is the first Doctor who actually listened to me. I had two CT scans that he actually took the time to look at as well as the written reports. He has a great bedside manner and I finally felt that I found the right doctor. I actually drove an hour and a half for my appointment yesterday, and it was well worth it. Today I received the text message first thing in the morning about setting up my surgery. I was texting with Regina who is also amazing and answered any question that I had. I was able to set up my surgery date with ease. Even down to the receptionist, who was super bubbly, and just had a great personality. The building an office itself was just good. Clean and friendly and welcoming. I trust that Dr. Undavia won’t disappoint when I have my surgery in December. Great experience!

I traveled from Toms River, NJ to Marlton based on the excellent reviews for Dr. Reddy. Location, wait time, the office, his assistant and his attention to my issues exceeded my expectations. I didn’t feel rushed and he thoroughly explained everything regarding treatment options. I highly recommend him for all your ENT needs.

Dr Gregory Smith is a great doctor. He performed surgery on me 18 months ago and this follow up showed great results. I recommend him to anyone needed ENT help.

I couldn’t be more thrilled with Dr. Undavia. When I first came to the office I had ruptured my ear drum. I was under another Doctor’s care and after 1 month I was no better and in so much pain. Dr. Undavia was recommended by a friend. After just 2 weeks my condition improved tremendously. I would highly recommend Dr. Undavia to anyone looking for an ENT. He is caring and kind and so is his nurse. Thank you Dr. Undavia
