Customer Question
My 12 rear old...

My 12 rear old son went to the doctor yesterday with a fever, cough and sore throat. His throat wasn't red, but he did have a spot that looked like a blister on it and a cold sore on his lip. The doctor thought he probably had a virus and gave me directions for treating him at home, but instructed me to keep an eye on his throat. He also checked his lungs which were clear despite the nasty cough. He ran fever last night and this morning, but he doesn't have fever now. He does have red spots on his ankle and back now. It doesn't look like bites and none of our animals have fleas. He was complaining earlier that his shoulders hurt to the touch when I put my arm around him or payed a hand gently on his shoulder.

Doctor's Assistant: How long have you had the symptoms? Do you have a fever?

He has been sick since Friday morning, but no fever right now.

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

My son has a tendency to have asthma like symptoms when he is sick, but the doctor checked his lungs and said they were clear.
