My 5 year old has been sick and progressivly getting worse. First it was just a mild fever and runny nose. Yesterday he developed a bad cough and his fever got higher. Before I gave him tylenol he is very tired and just lays there. After I gave him the medicine though he got up walked around and was a chatty cathy. He still felt a little warm but the fever had gone down a lot.
My question is how many days with a fever should I wait before taking him to see his doctor. Mind you today is Friday and if he doesn't go in today, he'd probably have to wait till Monday. (They are not open yet otherwise I would have already called and asked a nurse)
