Warning Signs A Child Needs To See A Doctor

January 13, 2012, 5:35 PM

Warning Signs A Child Needs To See A Doctor
SIOUX FALLS, SD - At some point, every young child has a runny nose, a slight fever or upset stomach. But not every symptom means it's time to go to the doctor.

Doctors say, sometimes a wait and see approach will work. But, there are certain signs and symptoms a parent should never ignore. First of all, high fevers should always raise a red flag.

"Fever above 100.3 in any baby under three months, get to your doctor that day. If you have a kid that has a fever and they're a toddler and its above 101 and it's lasting a couple of days or they're not looking right to you- get seen." Pediatrician Ellen Rome said.

Doctors add that older children should see their pediatrician if their fever reaches 103.
Babies with dry diapers or sunken head could be showing signs of dehydration and should be seen right away.
And, if your child has a rash that resembles a bull's eye, they should be seen right away because it could be a symptom of Lyme Disease.

Finally, If a child wakes in the middle of the night with stomach pain it too could be the sign of something serious.

So in that case, you should also give your doctor a call.
