Your child’s healthcare provider will take a medical history and examine your child.
The healthcare provider will likely refer you to an otolaryngologist, a healthcare
provider who specializes in care of the ears, nose, and throat (ENT). In some cases,
a laryngoscopy (a test that lets the ENT healthcare provider see inside the larynx)
is also done. With a laryngoscopy, a thin, usually flexible scope is passed through
the nose or mouth into the throat. It allows the ENT healthcare provider to look for
problems with the epiglottis, larynx, and the area around the larynx.
