Frequent sore throat - Online Doctor Chats
User : hello
Doctor : hello
how can i help u?
User : my daughter is 2 and half and she has frequent sore throat 2-3 month for past 4 months and low grade fever of 100-100.5 constantly. I was told this is because of her acid reflux.. can this be possible?
Doctor : ok
can i ask u few questions
User : yes
Doctor : * Heartburn (a burning feeling rising from the stomach or lower chest up towards the neck).
* Regurgitation (bringing food back up into the mouth).
* Chest pain.
* Difficulty in swallowing (dysphagia).
* Hoarseness, dental erosion and asthma (because acidic juices can make their way into the throat, mouth and air passages of the lungs).
Doctor : these are the most common symptoms of acid reflux
there will not be fever
i thinkn it is because of some viral infection
User : that's a long time for a viral infection to last.. wow.
it is repeated infection
it is very common in kids
as they have very low resistance to infection
User : what should I do? should I not worry about it?
u dont have to worry about it
