My son is constantly sniffing and clearing his throat...?
My 6 year old son is constantly sniffing and then clearing his throat , when he blows his nose there is nothing to come away his nose seems to be dry, he also makes a grunting noise as if he feels the need to clear his throat straight after sniffing. Ive have been to my GP numerous times in the past 2 months and finally he refered him to a ENT specialist,but in the meantime i am trying all ways to resolve this problem..Any body got any solutions???????

He could just be having a nervous thing and grow out of it.

They learn to do it, keep doing it and then they get into a habit. Try to ignore it and it will go away.

my son went through phases of different habit's such as clearing his throat all the time,and twitching his head.These thing's are called ticks which is a habit that ur child has got into try and ignore it I know it is hard but the more you go on about it the more the child seems to do it! so ignore it and say nothing and you will find that your child will stop doing whatever tick they are doing,my son stopped his when we ignored them. good luck xx

Just ignore it. My daughter went through a phase of doing that as did my nephew and my other nephew went through a phase of blinking too much. Kids are a bit weird sometimes! Best thing to do is distract him - maybe say "not that silly noise again" and then change the subject. Focussing on it will turn it into something real in his mind.

My daughter doesn't sniff or clear her throat anymore (she's now 11). Very occasionally she will if she's stressed or nervous about something.

You may want to contact an allergist? Have you tried giving him an antihistamine? That may help. If he has a post nasal drip it would cause the symptoms you described.

I have known people who have done this as a nervous habit or as a tick. You are on the right track with your GP, I hope you find your answer.

He will probably have his adenoids checked out. These are spongy tissues at that are located where the passage of the back of the throat and the nostril meet. They could be enlarged. It is a very common problem in children. It is not the most comfortable procedure. They take a long metal thing ( looks like a meat thermometer) and put it up their nose to take a look.

You can also try taking dairy out of his diet for a while to see if there is an allergy. Dairy can also irritate and enlarge the adenoids.
