The days are just starting to cool down and it’s the time of year when cold and flu season starts up.

Most parents know when their child isn’t feeling well, but what are the signs your child may need to be seen by a doctor?

The general rule is to let your doctor know if your child has a fever of 103 F or higher or has had a fever of 101 F or higher for more than 72 hours. 

If they are having trouble swallowing, or they are coughing up a lot of mucus, or you can feel swollen glands or an earache, you should take them to see a doctor.

And, of course, lots of TLC helps too.
