When to Call

When is it time to call the doctor? As a parent, you probably ask yourself this question at least once a week. The answer is simple, if your child is feeling sick or hurt and you’re not sure what to do, don’t be afraid to pick up the phone. Sometimes it helps to get a expert opinion to be safe. Your parental instincts are usually right.

Be sure to call us if:

  • Your child is abnormally fussy, sleepy, cranky, or quiet
  • Your child looks very sick
  • Your child’s fever will not drop or your child develops other serious symptoms
  • Your child has a fever for more than three days
  • Your child is younger than 3 months old and has a temperature above 100° F
  • Your child is 3 to 6 months old and has a temperature above 101° F
  • Your child is 6 to 12 months and has a temperature above 103° F
  • Your child has a stiff neck
  • Your child has trouble breathing
  • Your child has ear or sore throat pain
  • Your child has a seizure
  • Your child has a serious skin rash
  • Your child cries inconsolably
  • Your child is difficult to awaken
