The Symptoms You Should Never Ignore In Your Child


#6. Sudden stomach pain: If your little one is complaining about pain around the navel, or on the right side of the abdomen, take a trip to the paediatrician, especially if these complaints are associated with other symptoms such as vomiting or diarrhoea. This can be a sign of appendicitis, a condition that progresses rapidly unless diagnosed quickly.

#7. Headache with vomiting: Migraines are not uncommon in children, but these symptoms need to be examined more carefully.

#8. Decreased urine: This symptom is often associated with a dry mouth, pale skin, vomiting or diarrhea and can be a sign of dehydration. If you notice paleness and listlessness, call 911 or find the nearest hospital.

#9. Blue Lips: This signal may be associated with difficulty breathing. You may notice that your little one is breathless or wheezing as they breathe. This could be a respiratory problem caused by an allergic reaction or even an asthma attack. In this case, look for the nearest medical help.

#10. Swelling of the face, tongue or lips: These are characteristic signs of a strong allergic reaction. Contact your doctor to see if the symptoms require medical attention and quickly take your child to the emergency room.

#11. Vomiting after fall: Especially when it comes to a baby, this may be a neurological emergency. If your child has this symptom, do not delay; go to the doctor immediately.

#12. Excessive bleeding: If your child has a cut and the bleeding does not stop even after several minutes of pressure, take the little one to your pediatrician so the correct sterilization and treatment may be administered.

It is important to take immediate action if you notice your child suffering one or more of these symptoms. Even if it turns out that it is nothing serious, it is better to be safe than sorry. If, even after a visit to the doctor, the situation worsens or the symptoms do not go away, consult a second opinion.
