See a doctor: It is best to follow up with your doctor, instead of using the emergency room for a 5 day illness. You doctor can get the answers you need and the treatment your baby needs. If you think your baby is worse, then that would be the time for an emergency room, only if your doctor is not available.

Now: If your 7 week old has a temperature above 100.4 f for more than 5 days you need to take him to your doctors office today for a "sick visit".
