My 6-year-old son is repeatedly clearing s throat throughout

My 6-year-old son is repeatedly clearing his throat throughout the day. He's been doing this for about 2 or more weeks. Please listen to the short audio clip attached. Sometimes it's once...other times is 5 or more clearings in a row. We took him to an allergist earlier in the year, and everything was fine. My wife took my took him to a pediatrician yesterday, and she said it's just a vocal tick that will go away on it's own. She seemed to think it was a way to get attention. Anyway, I'm not sure about this diagnosis, so I'm posting it here.

My 10 week old has been sleeping in a new bassinet for 3 days ( he outgrew his old one).he sleeps fine in it- tosses and turns some but sleeps 6 hrs. I purchased an organic mattress for the bassinet made with wool, natural latex and cotton. Now I am worried because I read online natural latex mattresses can cause Simptoms on babies?

My six-year old daughter was initially diagnosed with suspected juvenile arthritis. However, after series of lab tests, results came out negative. But she still complains that her knee/s, feet, leg/s are in pain and I noticed this whenever she eats beef. I want to know what are the tests that she needs to support that she has no arthritis.?

I'm a 23 year old male and reason I have this reddish

Hi, so I'm a 23 year old male and for some reason I have this reddish dot on the back of my throat. It's been there since at least January and hasn't really changed in consistency since then. I do have health anxiety and am really freaking out about it today. I've had two doctors who've looked at my throat when I had colds since January and neither of them has said anything about it. Is it completely harmless or could it be something concerning like oral cancer, some infection, or some other serious issue? It's probably irrational since it's been there for so long but I guess I'm just really wondering why it's there. Also, my throat has been a little scratchy today (probably from allergies) so I've paid more attention to it.I'm 6'2, 167lbs and would consider myself healthy. I had a CBC done about a month ago and everything came back normal

I went to breastfeed my 10th month old son and put m down

I went to breastfeed my 10th month old son and put him down for a nap. He was really fussy and so I had to rock him quite a bit before he fell asleep. He slept about 20min and then woke up and vomited all over the bed. I thought it was because was rocking him after feeding him so I cleaned him up and put him in the living room to play. A little while later I noticed that he had big welts or hives on the back of his neck. I asked my husband what he fed him for lunch and my husband told me he fed him scrambled eggs which he had never had before. My son then had a huge diarrhea. So while cleaning him up I noticed that he was red all over his stomach had small welts on his legs and his head. So I called the pharmacy and they told me to give him 2.5mg of loratadine. So I gave him that. 30 min later my son vomited again. But the welts were going away and the redness was less so I figured he was ok. The pharmacy said that I could only give him that once in a 24 hour period. Will my son need more medication? Will his hives come back? He started to have some trouble swallowing when I was giving him the loratadine but he hasn't shown any signs of breathing problems or wheezing. What should I do if his welts or hives come back.
