Nasal polyps

My 11 year old son has had nasal polyps on & off for last 3 years.
They seem to be worse when he stays at peoples houses who smoke,what i would like to know is will that make his polyps worse or is it just a coincidence?

Hi,
How is your son? Nasal polyps are the result of swelling/inflammation  in the nose or sinuses. Risk factors include conditions that results in chronic inflammation of the nasal passages, allergic conditions, asthma, rhinitis,  and even genetics. Presence of allergy may indeed be a factor in triggering the symptoms. Talk to your doctor about this for proper management. Take care and best regards.
