Drug treatment for adenoids is not always prescribed, but only in those cases when a surgical operation is contraindicated for some reason. In particular, antibiotics for adenoids are used only with the attachment of microbial infection in the upper respiratory tract.
Antibiotics are selected and prescribed by a medical specialist, usually on the basis of sowing mucus from the nasopharynx and assessing the resistance of bacteria to antibacterial drugs.
Are adenoids treated with antibiotics?
Doctors do not always prescribe antibiotics for the treatment of adenoids, since the use of such drugs is not always advisable and can adversely affect the state of the digestive and urinary system.
Antibiotics may be appropriate:
- when joining a bacterial infection;
- with a high probability of complications;
- at the preparatory stage before the surgical intervention.
