I am so sorry if this question is a repeat... I can't quite

I am so sorry if this question is a repeat... I can't quite figure this out..I took my 2 year old daughter to a family friendly work event. She picked up a bottle of bottled water off the ground rather than from the new waters in the cooler. I took it away from her to make sure she did not choke on the cap, but I wasn't thinking and I gave it back to her and she drank from it...I am so worried I exposed her to germs/disease... Please help...do I take her to ear and explain what happened?

My daughter almost 4 now suffered from sever reflux up to

My daughter almost 4 now suffered from sever reflux up to almost 2 years of age. Even up until last year I noticed she would sometimes still gag in her sleep. Recently she had a case of myiasis. From this she developed diarrhea and her reflux came back. She also developed a fever and strep throat. I believe I've treated her strep throat (wont have confirmation until Tuesday) but her reflux had only been getting worse and worse. She spent all last night throwing up because we made the mistake of letting her drink too much Sprite also.I know the symptoms of reflux. I've dealt with it with 2 children. Sour breath. Wet burps. Congestion/gagging when laying flat. I could go on. I know she has it bad.I just don't know what to do. It seems like a direct cause of the myiasis, but I know that is benign and the only symptom left from that is (mild diarrhea) which looks more like softening of her stool because she suffers from severe constipation.

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.
