Customer Question
My 13 yr old...

My 13 yr old has cobblestone throat. She has had it for a year. We first took her to the doctor the did a strep test and gave her Zyrtec (SP) to take everyday yet here we are a year later with no improvement. Is there something I am missing?

Doctor's Assistant: How severe is this?

It bothers her

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

Not sure what you mean

3) Upper GI endoscopy.

Following measures are helpful:

1) Small 5-6 meals a day.

2) Last meal should be eaten 3 hours before lying down.
