I have a granddaughter...

I have a granddaughter who is 4.5 years old, has high fever and has trouble breathing. How can we get a doctor to check her out here at the villa?

Doctor's Assistant: What are all the granddaughter's symptoms, and how severe are they?

Coughing, trouble breathing, high fever

Doctor's Assistant: How long has she been dealing with the fever? Is this a repeating or first-time issue?

The whole day today

Please let me try to help answer your question. If the child is having a high fever and difficulty breathing - she should be taken to an emergency center (ER or urgent care) and be evaluated tonight.

This could represent pneumonia, influenza, or RSV infection. If she is struggling to breath - she needs to be seen soon I am a pediatrician of 22 years and this is concerning. Please take her to emergency room. If this was helpful, please give me a five star rating. If you have a follow up question I would be happy to answer it, but please have her evaluated ASAP

I feel so much better today, and upon further investigation believe that there is a chance that the responses I got saved me from a serious, even life threatening situation. I am very grateful to the experts who answered me.

I can go as far as to say it could have resulted in saving my sons life and our entire family now knows what bipolar is and how to assist and understand my most wonderful son, brother and friend to all who loves him dearly. Thank you very much

Corrie MollPretoria, South Africa

I thank-you so much! It really helped to have this information and confirmation. We will watch her carefully and get her in for the examination and US right away if things do not improve. God bless you as well!

Suggested diagnosis was what I hoped and will take this info to my doctor's appointment next week.
I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
