Trust your instincts when it comes to calling pediatrician
DEAR DOCTOR K: How can I tell if my kids’ illnesses are serious enough to call the pediatrician?
DEAR READER: Certain situations should be “red flags” to contact the pediatrician: inability to move part of his or her body, worsening or persistent pain, severe bleeding or second- or third-degree burns.
There are plenty of gray areas, of course. You can try to treat these conditions at home. But if the situation worsens, seems unusual or you’re not sure what to do, you can always pick up the phone.
