When to Consider Kids Urgent Care
Kids are not just smaller adults. Their unique bodies calls for a different level of medical treatments. A fever in an infant under two months old is always an emergency, however it’s less of a concern in toddlers or children. Keep in mind a visit to an ER may expose your child to even more germs or other infections.
When you cannot see your child’s doctor within a day, or if it’s after hours think kids urgent care. If your child is still able to talk, play, and interact, but have the following conditions consider a kids urgent care:
- Cold or flu symptoms
- Earache, pulling at the ears, or drainage from the ears
- White patches on the tonsils (sore throat)
- Sore throat or coughs
- Itchy, red, puffy eyes ,with or without discharge (pink eye)
- Vomiting or diarrhea (without blood) with no belly pain or dehydration
If you, or your child, feels ill please take special precautions. If you have any of the following symptoms immediately request a mask to cover your nose and mouth from the staff.
- runny nose
- sore throat
- respiratory illness symptoms
