You get the most from this site when you provide enough detail for a reasoned answer to be formulated. You do not include the kids age, ability to breathe without difficulty, feed or play which are important factors in assessing the severity of any illness. You are welcome to start over. The answer will differ depending on these factors. If you are spooked enough just go be seen.
