    It's time to head to the doctor to get it checked. You certainly don't want to make an assumption only to find out later that it is something that should have been treated differently. For example, an infection might be treated with an anti-biotic but an anti-biotic could make thrush (yeast infection in mouth) much worse and could make reflux worse. Better to get it checked if it is becoming a chronic issue.
