Cold and sweaty help.

My son is almost months old, I am just getting over a fever. Now even though he is all covered up and sleeping his skin is cold, and his head is getting sweaty...

His father took the thermometer with him so I dont have one at the moment.

He got his 2nd round of shots two days ago. What should I do?

  • Where are you feeling him? If he is cold on his chest and back... (check with your lips they are better than hands) then you might want to talk to a doctor.
    But if his head or limbs are cold but the rest is warm I wouldn't worry about it, unless he is acting sick.
    I wouldn't bring him to an ER just because he seems cool... he's more likely to get sick from the germs there.
