8 Symptoms You Should Never Ignore in Children

8. Unresponsiveness

If your child is not responsive or is unconscious, get help immediately. Call 911.

Children should wake up and then be alert. If your child is not able to wake up or is then unusually quiet or inactive or is not interested in a favorite toy, call your doctor.

Changes in responsiveness especially after a fall or hitting the head should result in an immediate doctor’s visit (more on that later) or ER visit if after hours.
