  • My 3 year old doesn't speak well but he usually holds his tummy when it hurts. If you think you should go to the doctors, it has been three days. I would go after a fever for three days.

  • well a fever is usually a sign that the body is fighting something off. so there is no harm to take him to the doctor it could easily be something other than the swine flu. My four year old was running a fever and just tired etc turns out he had an ear infection (told me his mouth hurt guess he ment the side of his face? lol) so i am glad i took him in better safe then sorry right! GL!

  • I would prolly call the doc in the morning since it has been going on for a few days. Im not sure what age the molars come in, but could that be a possibility?
