  • It's always better to be safe.... especially if you aren't sure what it is. It could be a rash of some sort, or an indication of another problem. Either way, it can't hurt to take her. Hope all goes well!

  • I would, Just because she doesn't have a fever doesn't mean something isn't wrong. The fact that they hurt, would be enough for me to take her in. Call the doc when they open and get a same day appointment.

  • go to the doc. it's better to be safe then sorry. it could be limpnoides that are swelled up or something like that. or it could be some sort of rash. don't make a big deal about it to your child just say the doc wants to look at them or something. good luck

  • I think you should because from what you posted it seems that the problem is ongoing rather than a one time thing.
