The rhino? Inflammation of the vegetations
- An ugly virus comes to ignite the vegetations. This crossroads area, located between the nose and the throat, occupies almost all the nasopharynx. And who says inflamed vegetations, says secretions of phlegm. Your child is thus clogged by thick mucus that it is difficult to evacuate by blowing: they tend to stagnate at the entrance of the throat. But good news, the vegetations are a temporary organ: they appear around 1 year, develop until 6-7 years, before atrophy and disappear. That's why beyond this age, rhinos are much less common.
