I have a 1...

I have a 1 year old that has been very sick for the past three days and I just wanted to see if it might be something that I need to take him into the clinic for or if I should treat it at home.

Doctor's Assistant: Have you seen a doctor about this yet? What medications are you taking?

No, I haven't taken him to a doctor yet. I've been giving him children's acetaminophen.

Doctor's Assistant: Do you keep personal medical records to help track this?

I have all of his updates from wellness visits if that's what you mean.

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

He has gotten sick before, but never to this extent—he usually bounces back quickly and the symptoms don't usually hit him this hard. He did have his flu shot this year.

Hello, my name is***** and I shall be assisting you today. I'm reviewing your query & will get back to you shortly. Thank you for your patience.

What are his symptoms?

Customer reply replied 3 months ago
He has been cranky, has a very runny nose (today the mucus has been green), almost no appetite, and sad eyes that are involuntarily weepy all day. He is also very clingy and not sleeping well.

Since his mucus is green, it can be bacterial infection for which you should see a doctor as he would prescribe antibiotics for this. So with these symptoms i would say you should take him to the doctor for full examination and prescription.

sincerely ***** ***** I have helped you and that I have earned my 5-star rating today!

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.
