Dear sir, adenoid is a lymphatic structure, it’s there is severe obstruction causing snoring, dribbling of saliva, mouth breathing, and recurrent respiratory tract infection and blocked sensation in ears, sometimes we need to go for surgical management, if these symptoms are not severe, we can wait till the age of 6. Treatment depends on the severity.

Sleeping normal without snoring might be palliative effects of medication which is temporary. It needs to be verified if adenoid is still there. If it is there then you have two options. 1. Try Electropathy if time permits otherwise second the last option should be surgery.
