User :   My daughter is 2 and half and has frequent sore throats 2-3 monthly for past four months or so, and a constant fever of 100-100.5 almost all the time lately. We were told it was her acid reflux issues that are causing her throat and fever issues. I have never heard of a toddler with a constant low grade fever and this many sore throats in a row. I am very worried and debating whether to get a second opinion on this. Could this really be caused from acid reflux or something else like a viral infection?? What should I do about it?? thanks
Doctor :   i shall take few min to read
User :   ok
Doctor :   yes the acid reflux can cause this

User :   since she is still ahving these problems even after being on medicine.. should I talk to her doctor about changing her meds?
Doctor :   acid reflux is such a condition that it is not cured only by medicines
Doctor :   in this the acid from stomach enters back into the mouth causing pharyngitis
Doctor :  
the medicines are given only to reduce the content of acid
Doctor :   following measures should be followed
