We have 22 mth old twin girls and one of them has had allergies for over a year. Always sick .She hasnt been able to breathe through her nose for over 6 mths. Their pediatrician says its allergies but im skeptical. Allergies causes clear nose drainage....she has no drainage. Every time she sleeps she wakes herself up gasping for air. She breathes through her mouth 24/7 but while she's asleep she unconsciously tries breathing through her nose and its completely blocked. No rattling..no sniffling..no sneezing...just can't breathe.
Wondered if anyone else has had these symptoms in their child and whether it was allergies or could it be adenoids.

It could be draining down her throat instead of out her nose. If you don't like what your pediatrician has to say, ask to see a specialist. Or find another pediatrician for a second opinion. Good luck!
