Hello, No need to rush to ER, just give her some tylenol or motrin for pain and allow to rest overnight. Please see your regular pediatrician in morning if required. Please give extra fluid also.

If on assessment the pediatrician finds same pupil anomaly, see a pediatric neurologist for further assessment and tests.

I feel better already! Thank you.

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.

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.
