5 Year Old Complains Of Forehead Pain
3.5 year old daughter complained of a headache in her forehead and was tired. Just checked her temp as she fell asleep and it was 102. Emergency?
Not necessarily: Headache and fever are common non-specific signs of illness. I hate to wake a kid from sleep, since sleep helps healing, so concentrate on what else is going on. Has she taken fluids well enough to be hydrated. Was there anything else you recall that you think cannot wait. Difficulty breathing, active bleeding, broken bones, etc are ER visits for me. Simple fever and headache can be watched. Read more

My 5 year old son has been complaining of a pain in the back of his head, it only last for about a minute and doesn't come back for a few weeks?
Maybe...: ..He bumps his head every few weeks. Maybe he is not sleeping well, or has a virus, or is responding to too much noise. More information is needed to give you a better answer, but anytime a 5 year old complains of headaches repeatedly, I think it's worth seeing your doctor and having him checked out. Read more
My 5 year old daughter has had high temperature of 38/39 c over last 2 days and now has temp of 35.5 c. Complaining of head, tummy & throat pains.
Sounds like she: May be coming down with throat infection that may require antibiotics. It would be best for her to be seen. Being the weekend and night time, er is the only choice unless you call your pediatrician for advice. Read more
My 5 year old says her forehead hurts, and her neck, crying a little, normal for a child to get headache?
It sounds like: She could have a strep infection....often associated with neck pain and headache. Children can get headaches although they aren't always able to describe it well. I would recommend you take her to her pediatrician today or tomorrow to be properly diagnosed and treated. You can also give her fever reducing medicine. If any other symptoms develop or she looks sicker, take her to the ER tonight. Read more
My 2.5 year old fell down some wood stairs. No one witnessed it. He has a bump on forehead and nose bleed. Sleepy too but it is his bedtime. Worry?
Head Injury: You do need to be vigilant tonight. Once 24 hours have passed without any worsening then you can breathe a bit easier. If your child is not throwing up and can be aroused from sleep a couple of times tonight then things will be fine. If he begins to vomit this is an emergency. Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
My 5 year old has lumps on the lower part of his head and complaints he can't bend his head to his chest?
My 5 year old son has started nodding his head, sniffing and making a high pitched hum noise when he does it. It is a quick jerking. Eyes blinking too?
My 3.5 year old son fell and bumped his head. He threw up immediately and has thrown up twice in the past 2 hours. All other signs that we read about seem fine and he said he felt OK. Is the vomiting cause for concern?
Call doctor's office: It might be, especially if the fall was high or the impact was with a very hard surface. I would contact your physician immediately or go to ER. Vomiting more than once after a head injury is a red flag, especially if your child seems irritable, sleepy, confused, clumsy, quiet or has weakness or unequal sized pupils. Obviously I cannot examine your child so I must be cautious. Seek immediate care. Read more

Why would a 5 year old still have a soft spot on his head my sons 5 years old and he still has his sof spot on top of his head like a baby dose
See your doctor.: The soft spot (fontanelle) should close between 1 and 2 years of age. There are various medical conditions that can cause it to remain open longer. I encourage you to see your child's doctor as soon as possible to evaluate this issue. Good luck! Read more
My 5 year old daughter has woken up the past 2 nights saying her head hurts. She has a fever of 39. Should I see a dr?
Yes!: Any pain that wakes a child can be a serious issue. I recommend you see your pcp as soon as possible. Be on the look out for more symptoms like dizziness or vomiting and watch how his gait is. If he is stumbling or having trouble with his speech it means the headaches need immediate attention. The fever can cause headaches but it is the waking up at night that worries me. Good luck.

Head issue my 5 year old daughter tried to pop her neck and said it burned her head up above her right ear close to the center of her head
She: She may have irritated a nerve when she did that. If she still has head or neck pain then please have your pediatrician evaluate her. I am concerned that she is trying to pop her neck which can cause damage in children that age. If she is having pain please have your pediatrician evaluate her. If she has severe neck pain, any numbness or weakness or fever, then she would need to be seen as an emergency. Read more
