  • What were the new foods? I'd be calling around to find a pediatrician or emergency clinic in your health insurance network.

  • Go to the DOCTOR......
    He could be having an allergic reaction to the environment or even the foods and if you don't get him treated it could cause worse symptoms like cutting off his airway and causing DEATH. Find the nearest hospital and GO.

  • Ds had an infection behind his eye when he was 3 that caused his eye and side of his face to well- we ended up att he er because I was nervous about it. Turns out with good reason. He could have lost vision from it. I personally would be finding a clinic.
