white lumps in throat
I recently took my 7 y/o daughter to the ER due to coughing, red throat and whitish lump in the back.  The Physician's Assistant said it's most likely food particles that will eventually dislodge itself, but has yet to do so.  Should we get it out ourselves?  How should we do that without putting my daughter through any pain?

Sounds like possible thrush.
Try gargling with salt water if she can/will. It will help.
I would take her back to the doctor for fear of worse diseases. Meningitis come to mind? Never mess with a sore throat.
Could also be chicken pox or measles...get her checked again please.
