Allergies, Ear Aches, Kids and More

by -

February is Kids ENT Health Month.  According to the Academy of Otolaryngology (that's a fancy word for Ear, Nose and Throat medicine), "national health statistics reveal that pediatric ear, nose and throat disorders remain among the primary reasons children visit a physician, with ear infections ranking as the number one reason for an appointment.  From ear aches to choking hazards, kids can suffer from a variety of ailments that require prompt diagnosis and treatment."

Does your child suffer from:

Ear

  • Ear ache/infection
  • Swimmer's ear
  • Ringing in the ears
  • Hearing loss
  • Dizziness/balance problems

Nose

  • Asthma
  • Nose allergies
  • Nose bleeds
  • Chronic sinusitis
  • Sinus infections

Throat

  • Tonsillitis
  • Tonsil/adenoid infection
  • Chronic hoarseness of voice/sore throat

Make an appointment with Greene County Medical Center's visiting ENT specialist Dr. Tracey Wellendorf, so your child doesn't suffer through the aches and pains of childhood.
