Hello Doctor. I have a five year old who was down with a cold last week. Luckily she is doing much better but I have become concerned because I noticed she has looked yellow lately and is always tired. I was concerned because its not like her to be tired like this. I know there is a possibility it has to due with her being sick last week but I d like to be sure.

Thank you for your query,
Simple common cold in the last week may not be associated with the tiredness.
As you told she is looking yellow, jaundice has to be looked for.
In case of anemia child looks pale and get tired easily.
Try to give plenty of oral fluids and check her body temperature.
Consult your Pediatrician for the complete examination of your child to look for jaundice and for the causes of her tiredness.
Hope I have answered your query.
