What signs of infections should you watch for?
There are many signs or symptoms that your child may have an infection. Contact your pediatrician or family doctor if your child is sick with any of these signs or symptoms:
- Runny nose and cough that is not improving after several days or is severe
- Sore throat or sore ears
- Pains in the stomach
- Diarrhea that has blood or mucous or is not improving after 1-2 days
- Feeling of burning or pain when peeing
- Sores on the lips and around the mouth
As in all children, your child will likely get many of the colds and flus caused by viruses “going around” every year.
