Kawasaki Disease (cont.)

When to Seek Medical Care

Most pediatricians and associated health care professionals like to be aware of any significant fever in any child, though a visit to the office may not be necessary. If your child has a fever that lasts longer than a few days, it is important to consult with your child's doctor. The doctor will probably want to evaluate your child to check for a source of the fever. If your child has fever and develops any of the common signs and symptoms of Kawasaki disease listed above, it is important to discuss this with your doctor immediately. Obviously, if your child appears dehydrated and is not passing urine normally, he/she needs to be evaluated urgently.
