A sick visit to the pediatrician is for illnesses that are not in any way life-threatening. If your child is bleeding profusely, has had a severe head injury, is having difficulty breathing, is dehydrated, having a seizure, or is unconscious, this is the time to call 911 or rush to the emergency room.
It is best to call ahead if your child is feeling ill and make an appointment. This means there will be less time spent waiting in the waiting room where there may be other sick children. At the end of the visit, hopefully, you will have a diagnosis or will need to go for other tests. You may need to pick up a prescription at the pharmacy. You will likely be told to call the office if there are any changes or if symptoms get worse. Be sure to follow the advice of your doctor and take the prescription until all the medicine is gone.
