In brief: Call in for guidance
Your average toddler will have simple viral illnesses or treatable bacterial infections with or without fever.
Further review of symptoms, duration, status of hydration and degree of childs awareness can be done by phone with your provider or his/her nurses. The decision to come in can be made after such review. Guidance on home care can be reviewed & followed until an eval is done if needed.
