I took my son to the doctors today for fear of broncitis since my husband and I just got over it. I was told he has the begining of a cold . Although the only thing he shows of it is a rough chest caugh with no production and a fever. His nose is clear and his throught is only a little sore he says. My concern is his very rapid heartbeat . It has been racing like crazy all day. Help?

Generally with fever the heart rate goes up and since in children as it is the heart rate is faster than adults, that`s why probably you are noticing the rapid heart rate in your child. I`m sure as his cold and fever subside, his heart rate will also become normal. If it remains high even after the bout of cold has subsides, you may consult his paediatrician who can guide you correctly.
