My son has strained his voice and I was wondering if I should take him to the dr or send him to school. He has no other symptoms, swelling or reddness that I can see and says it dosen't hurt. School or dr?

Shall I just keep him home from school, call the dr or let him go to school if he feels up to it?

  • I'm probably answering too late, but I'd send him to school. Just send the teacher a note to let her know and tell him to try not to talk too much.
