  • I agree with Mommahawk...you need to go now and possibly call ahead to your local ER or child's Ped. I wish the best for your son.

  • Yes you definatly do. Take him to the er if you have to. Or an urgent care. Get to a doctor as soon as you can. He can get infections and I dont even know what else!!!

  • Yes, go now if you haven't already gone. Take grandma to explain and don't be surprised if a social worker comes to talk to you its just routine. Take care
