At Healing Hearts Pediatrics, P.L.C., we know that caring for a sick child is no fun! If your child has the sniffles, rest assured that our Board Certified pediatricians and nurse practitioners will take care of your most precious gift…your child.
Here are a few tips to help avoid illness:
Encourage your child
to frequently wash their hands, stay hydrated, eat well, and get plenty of sleep.
Always trust your instincts
It is better to have your child examined if you are concerned.
Fever in Infants and Toddlers
We recommend infants under two months old go to the emergency room for a rectal temperature of 100.4 or higher. If your child is between two months and three years of age, and has a rectal temperature of 103.4 or higher, speak with our triage nurse or one of our schedulers regarding a same-day appointment.
