3 1/2 yr old-


wakes late last night saying her forehead hurts. She started a horrible barking cough. Scary and said her lungs hurt. She was shaking. Then calmed her, gave milk (nipple). She still was shivery but very quickly better but had a fever. After less than an hour she seemed all normal except for fever. She slept with a fever 101. I think. This morning still fever and said forehead hurt. Then all good except fever. We walked around outside and and ate. After a few hour she said she was tired and she vomited lunch less than a half hour after eating. Now she is sleeping with fever.


Does this sound scary? The cough did. She did have this cough once before (brief too). I would think much of it if not for forehead pain and coughing hours ago. Now she coughs a tiny bit but not while sleeping and it sound like a regular old cough.


thanks you for thought!

That doesn't sound especially scary to me. There is a cough going around out town that makes sick-ies sound like they've been smoking for years. I hope you LO feels better!
