So your kid has a cold - blocked nose, or perhaps a runny nose. She’s sniffling. Down you go to the local clinic, where for a couple a hundred NT and a lot of wailing, they’ll insert a tube up both the nostrils and suck out the offending snot. If it’s a high class establishment, before they do this you will have access to a warm steam vaporizer to help loosen all that gunk in your kid’s tubes.
Am pretty sure this is never done in the UK. Is it a common practice in the USA? And are there any problems associated with it. Really can’t make up my mind if it is a good/bad thing. Daughter thinks it’s bad, but then she’s too young to count.
