What the Expert Says:

I agree completely.  While there is always the possibility of two separate illnesses, it is important that the child be in contact with the medical home for advice and follow up examination.

Hi Dani0724, I'm sorry to hear that your child has a fever and cough.

However, a medical question like this is really best answered by your child's pediatrician or a licensed health care professional who can examine your child in person. Please contact your child's doctor as soon as possible.
