Young babies with fever, especially in the first few months of life, need to be assessed by a doctor. Other concerning symptoms include poor feeding, vomiting, lethargy or irritability and skin rash. Difficulty breathing is concerning for all children. You know your child’s behaviour better than anyone else so if you are concerned or they are not behaving normally, seek medical attention as soon as possible.
