Pediatrics Q & A

  • Ear infections

How do I know if my child has the flu?

It’s hard to tell the difference between the common cold and the flu. The main difference is that the flu typically brings with it more severe symptoms, including:

  • Abdominal pain and vomiting
  • A high fever of up to 104 degrees F
  • Chills and shaking
  • A dry, hacking cough
  • A sore throat
  • Extreme fatigue
  • Extreme tiredness
  • Muscle aches

A “stomach bug” or food poisoning might clear up on its own within a day or two, but the flu is caused by a virus that lasts longer. The first two days of flu symptoms are usually the worst.

Please note that you should call 9-1-1 or visit the emergency room immediately if any of these symptoms appear:

  • Difficulty breathing
  • Listlessness or unusual responses, such as not making eye contact with you
  • Skin that turns bluish or gray
  • Seizure

What should I expect during an urgent care pediatric visit?

When you visit Physicians Medical Urgent Care with your child, be prepared to share details about the condition, including the severity and duration of each symptom. Be sure to discuss your child’s medical history and bring any medications or supplements your child takes.

You can be confident that the staff members are here to make your child feel as comfortable as possible while simultaneously treating the condition.
