When to See our Pediatricians
We know that it can be challenging to know when to bring your child in for care or when you may need to rush to the ER. We can diagnose and treat a wide range of conditions, injuries, and diseases right here in our office; however, if your child is dealing with a serious or life-threatening problem, it’s important that you call 911 or immediately go to the nearest emergency room. For all non-life-threatening health problems, the team at Express Pediatric Care is here to help.
Reasons for a sick-child visit include,
- A fever that is higher than 100.4 F for children under 2 months, or fever at or over 104 F in older children (as well as fevers that last more than two days)
- Abdominal pain
- Ear infection
- Painful or severe rash
- Bad fall or accident
- Issues swallowing
- Persistent or intense headaches or migraines
Dehydration, concussions, severe bleeding, and other serious issues are best handled at an emergency room; however, most everyday illnesses and injuries can be treated by our team of pediatricians right here at our Greenville, SC practice.
