Being sick or having a sick child can be scary or disconcerting. Most often, the cause of any adverse sign or symptom is benign, but it is still crucial that you seek medical attention in case their condition is something more severe.
When should I bring my child in for a sick visit?
If you are concerned that your child is ill, it is not always easy to know if you should bring them in to see a pediatric doctor. At Walking Urgent Care, we aim to provide same-day appointments for children who are sick as much as is possible. If your child is experiencing any of the following symptoms, we urge you to consider bringing them in for medical attention:
- Abdominal pain
- Abnormal looking urine or stool
- Bruises, cuts, fractures, scrapes, or sprains
- Chest pain
- Cold and flu symptoms
- Diaper rash
- Earaches, ear congestion, or ear infections
- Extreme loss of appetite
- Eye infections or irritations
- Severe cough
- Sore throat
You can always call us if you are uncertain whether you should bring your child in for an appointment, too!
If your newborn is experiencing a fever, this is considered a medical emergency and must be treated at the nearest emergency room.
Do I need to bring my child into the clinic if they are sick?
