Customer Question
My 4year Old fell...

My 4year Old fell up the stars and hit his throat. He gagged up mucus instantly like he was choking. About a half hour later he’s crying from pain when he swallows

Doctor's Assistant: Is the pain in your 4-year-old's throat constant or on and off? What seems to make him feel better or worse?

He says it just hurts to swallow.

Doctor's Assistant: How long has he been dealing with the pain? Is this a repeating or first-time issue?

He said it hurts all the time. Just worse when he swallows. This happened about an hr ago but he didn’t complain or cry til half hr ago.

Hi...as it happened 1 hour back and he didn't complain of throat pain or pain during swallowing till 39 min back, it is significant.This may be an indirect pointer that he might be developing swelling internally.Right now I suggest you give him Ibuprofen at the appropriate dose.If he's not able to swallow saliva or developes drooling or has stridor or noisy breathing or respiratory difficulty, then I suggest you take him to the nearest Emergency Room.Otherwise I feel with Ibuprofen he should be better in another 2 hours please."

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
