My 6 mo old is coughing, gagging and has red spots on her head, face and torso? Any idea?

She had a fever for two days prior and it came back briefly today after the spots formed..

  • Call your pediatrician and speak to the doc on call.

    Or wait until tomorrow and call your pediatrician.

    Either way she will probably have a trip to the doc in the morning.

  • Call your Ped. - take her temp and be prepared to answer questions about her intake, output and general demeanor.

  • Red spots could be a bacterial infection or the Measles. I would bring her to the Pediatrician ASAP.
