Customer Question

My 10yr old son has been running a low temp 95.3 for several hrs. He is pale and his only complaint is that it feels like someone is tickling his throat with a feather. I'm worried and wondering if I should take him to the ER?

Hi, Yes please do get him seen at ER. There could be a heart/circulation issue. Meanwhile please massage body surface with warm refined oil few minutes every hour or so. Also make him drink warm sugary water or soup. Warm salt water gargling may also be tried for throat symptom.

Good luck to him.
