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.

I gave my 6 year old some mucinex cough and cold and I feel like a huge dummy because I didn't read what it had and gave him some tylenol as well. Is this really bad? I don't know what to do now. Any help will be appreciated. Thank you.

Hello. For the first time I have just noticed a layer of oil on top of the water after my 5 year old son pooped. I'm reading online that this is fatty stool and the cause can be extremely frightening. Is there anything simple that this could be from and is there reason to panic now? I'm very alarmed. Thank you.

I've asked before but I'm asking again. I'm very concerned about my almost 10 year old son. He barely eats anything other than foods, mainly junk in the grains group. He likes all junk food- sweets, chips, etc.. He eats no veggies, sometimes apples.He will be 10 the end of September and he is currently 52 inches tall and only 52 pounds. He's afraid to try new foods, recently starting with anxiety when he eats which puts him in the bathroom to go. I'm very concerned for him and his health. What can I do?
