Welcome to HealthcareMagic forum
The symptoms described by you could be either allergic related or secondary to acid reflux
from the stomach into the throat. Do not worry! This is not a serious problem. It is not due to sipping the straw used by your daughter.
Simple home remedies
can alleviate your problems. Drink plenty of warm water, avoid excessive hot or chilled beverages, coffee and oily food. Do gargles with povidone iodine
solution 3-4 times every day after food. An anti-inflammatory medicine such as diclofenac
will help in reducing the pain. If the pain is very severe a short course of oral steroids will help in reducing the pain and the bump.
