Hello All ! I have been having issues with my 6 year old for 8 months now. It started out with him complaining every once in awhile about a feeling of something being stuck in his throat. I thought tonsils--until I was awoke one morning 5 months ago with him having breathing problems. After a trip to the ER I was told that the x-rays showed an abcess in his throat (mid way down)--thought to be from scratch. After 2 antibiotic shots and a week of oral antibiotics, things started to get better-----but never fully went away. Now a week ago--its all came back AGAIN!! He cant/wont eat hardly anything because he says it gets stuck in his throat. He always has to have a drink in hand, because he says the lump feels like its coming up his throat and almost gets stuck!!! I'm at a loss---not to mention I am freaked out!! Any ideas on what is causing this???
