Mallory Weiss: Sure, Mallory-Weiss syndrome is the term for a tear (laceration) of the inner lining (mucous membrane) of the esophagus where it connects to the stomach (gastroesophageal junction). The tear results from forceful retching, vomiting, or severe hiccupping that is frequently due to an underlying disorder or cause.

Clobex/children: It is safe to use in kids 12 and older. Under age 12, it is a pretty hefty steroid to use for a kid. It is a steroid, and a fairly potent one at that.
