Question: 11 month old gagging on food, not eating well, hoarse voice


 hjhj123 - Thu Aug 05, 2010 1:26 pm

My 11 month old has had congestion off and on for a few months now, but it has never interfered with her eating at all. She has always been a very good eater. This week she is hardly eating anything, she gags on some of the food that she usually loves. She has had a hoarse voice for about 3-4 days now and a little nasal drainage, but not as bad as it normally is. She is also is sleeping a lot during the day and will not play indepenantly like she normally does. She has not run any fever, but this is out of norm for her and it has me worried.

User avatar Hello,
Perhaps she has a viral illness, mild enough to not cause fever but still irritating her throat. If it does not resolve within a week you should take her to her health care provider to examine.

Best wishes.
