Also, treating specialists prescribe thuja oil with adenoids for children. The beneficial properties and application of this oil extract will be discussed in today's article.
Thuja oil for adenoids for children: indications and contraindications
Before we consider the main indications and contraindications to the use of this coniferous oil extract, I would like to draw the attention of moms to the fact that children under 18 are allowed to give only homeopathic Tui oil. This is due to the fact that the concentrated oil for the child's body is too toxic.
Thuja oil has a number of positive properties and has a truly miraculous effect on the body, in particular:
It is oil extract of thuja helps to cure many ailments in children, namely:
- runny nose;
- inflammation of the adenoid glands;
Taking thuja oil inside will help strengthen the child’s immunity, as well as normalize metabolic processes. In the pharmacy you can purchase both concentrated and homeopathic remedies. Do not forget that you need to strictly follow the instructions. First of all, you should show the kid to the attending specialist so that he can make a diagnosis. The doctor will write out a full course of treatment and determine the dosage of thuja oil.
In addition, before prescribing the drug, the attending specialist should rule out possible contraindications. These include:
- hypersensitivity to essential components;
- individual intolerance;
- manifestation of allergic reactions.
Despite the fact that thuja oil has found wide application in the complex treatment of inflammation of adenoid tumors in children, it can also be used to treat a number of other diseases, in particular:
- swelling in the nasopharynx;

At the pharmacy you can purchase homeopathic thuja oil, produced in the form of nasal drops and granules. Let's look at the most common pharmacological preparations of domestic production.
Tuya GF: instruction
Such a pharmaceutical agent is available in a special dropper bottle with dispenser. Be sure to shake the substance well before use. The pharmacological substance of Tui GF consists of an oil extract of western thuja, as well as of petroleum jelly. Thanks to this combination, these drops moisturize the mucous membrane of the nasopharynx well.
Most often, treating specialists prescribe such a drug in the development of chronic rhinitis. In its pure form, it should not be given to children under the age of 18 years. In some cases, the doctor may prescribe such a drug only when it is diluted with other pharmacological substances so that it is not too toxic.
Under the same brand ointment is produced, which is placed with the help of turunda in the nasal passage. Do not self-medicate. Excessive concentration of thuja oil may be toxic to a small child, which will lead to the development of complicated consequences. It is best to be careful and use this drug only for adults.
This pharmacological agent is also produced in Russia. It contains thuja oil and olive oil extract. This pharmaceutical preparation is recommended for use in such cases:
- in inflammation of the adenoid glands;
- with rhinitis of varying degrees;
- in case of polyps in the nasal passage.
Long-term studies of contraindications and side effects as a result of the use of this drug have not revealed. To cure the inflammation of adenoid tumors in a baby, you need to drop 3-4 drops into each nostril three times a day at the same time interval.
Job-baby with adenoids: how to take?
One of the most popular and common pharmacological drugs for the treatment of inflammation of the adenoid glands in children is Job-baby. This drug is also produced in Russia and belongs to the homeopathic group. Such a pharmaceutical substance is produced in the form of granules, which must be taken orally. Job-baby does not cause addiction, so the treatment of adenoid inflammation can last from two to three months to several years.
In many pharmacies you can find the pharmacological agent Barberry Comp. You can be sure that in terms of component composition and method of exposure, this medicine is an analogue of the drug Iov-baby.
The composition of the granular pharmaceuticals Job-baby includes the following components:
- barberry fruits;
- thuja oil extract;
Most often, this drug is prescribed for the treatment of the following pathologies:
- frequent acute respiratory diseases;
- inflammation of the adenoid glands.
Before giving such a drug to a child, make sure that your baby does not have any contraindications. Iov-baby is not allowed to take granules in such cases:
- in case of hypersensitivity to any active component;
- with sinusitis.
Depending on the age of the child, the degree of inflammation of the adenoid cavities, the attending specialist individually draws up the treatment regimen and determines the maximum dosage. Therefore, it is better for moms not to start treatment without prior consultation with an otolaryngologist or pediatrician.
Tui +: instruction
Tuya + is considered another popular and effective drug for the treatment of inflammatory processes in the adenoids. This preparation consists of the following active ingredients:
- thuja western;
- soda and sulfur compounds;
- barium carbonate;
- spotted hemlock.
Pharmaceutical drug Tui + in the form of granules is produced. They should not be given to children under three years old, since they alone will not be able to absorb the granule. Take this drug is recommended for inflammation of the adenoid dilations of I-II degree. The dosage and duration of the treatment course is compiled purely individually, depending on the age and severity of the pathology.
Let's listen to experienced moms
In various forums, you can read reviews of mothers who have experienced this disease in their children, such as inflammation of the adenoid nodes. Many of them say that thuja oil perfectly helped, but only after prolonged use. The treatment regimen was individually prescribed by the attending specialist. As practice shows, as evidenced by reviews, thuja oil helps only with inflammation of I-II degree, in other cases, many babies were removed by adenoids surgically.
According to some reviews, thuja oil helped children only in combination with silver ion-based pharmacological preparations or when taking Job-baby. In many reviews, mothers say that after two or three months the child began to breathe through his nose and stopped snoring in his sleep.
Some mothers were unhappy with the result, because their babies' treatment with Tui butter did not help. Also in many reviews there is information that the disease can be cured by using thuja oil in the form of drops, granular preparations and with the help of aromatherapy.
All mothers leave feedback that only the doctor should prescribe the dosage and duration of administration. Many parents crumbs refused to dissolve the granules, but simply swallowed them, so the desired result was not.
Inflammation of the adenoids is considered mainly a childhood disease. Sometimes the tonsils are simply removed by surgery. Still, most doctors insist on conducting homeopathic treatment. Do not try to independently calculate the dosage of thuja oil, in some cases this may be fraught with the onset of complicated consequences. Show your baby to the doctor, go with him a full examination. Be prepared for the fact that such a conservative treatment will be delayed for a long time. Health to you and your children!
