Specializes in Pediatrics

Difficulty swallowing can have many causes: Dryness of oropharynx/Dehydration, esophageal sphincter problem, scarring in the esophagus due to GERD, a mass, a neurological motility issue, etc. If this is something that occurs multiple times over a month, you should see your Dr for a full workup.
