8 Symptoms You Should Never Ignore in Children

3. Inconsolable Crying

If your baby/toddler is inconsolable, doesn’t want to be held, or the crying sounds wrong and especially if there is a fever, call your doctor. There are a lot of reasons for inconsolable crying.

While you are waiting for your doc to call back, check fingers and toes for something wrapped around it, an uncomfortable clothing tag, or other small causes. Ask about a tender tummy on the right side. Look for a rash that won’t fade temporarily when pressed gently.
