My two years old nephew is suffering from sleep apnea. Is there any treatment from medicine. Please advice me what should I do.

Need to check whether he has a habit of keeping his mouth open while sleeping and also any snoring issues. It's most likely Adenoid hypertrophy, which is a tissue in the nose which becomes enlarged in children, especially those who are allergic. He can be treated initial with medication and if still persists then to consider an endoscopy of nose followed by surgery.
