Thanks for writing in.

It seems that your son might have gastro esophageal reflux. This is giving rise to watering from mouth and chocking sensation in the throat. He might have gastritis or hyper acidity associated too. This can be confirmed with an endoscopy.

Continue giving Nexpro rd 40 once daily. If symptoms do not improve consult a gastroenterologist/endoscopist for endoscopy.

It is also essential to avoid fried, chillies and junk food. Take milk, buttermilk, curd, rice - they help.

Hope, I answered your query. If you have further query or clarification, please ask; I will be happy to help.

Wish your son speedy recovery.
