An urgent care doctor prescribed my 2 1/2 year old

An urgent care doctor prescribed my 2 1/2 year old grandson 4.5 ml prednisone once a day for 5 days. He has a start of pneumonia and was also prescribed 7.5 ml twice daily of amoxicillin. He has a hoarse voice and allergies and was already giving him zyrtec. I'm concerned giving him the prednisone and haven't yet and I feel the amoxicillin will help him alone. Am I right?

I recently moved to a different state I was diagnosed with Type 2 over two years ago. I ran out of medication last week and i haven t found a doctor yet. I just did a blood sugar check and i m at 558. Can I just go to an urgent care and have my prescription filled without having to stay overnight? I just turned 41 and i m 6 5 265lbs

My 6 year old went to urgent care today because he was having to urinate often and feeling like he had to go often but was not producing much each time. He said he was sore. I gave him a warm bath it helped a bit but when going to the bathroom he said it hurt. he was still able to urinate though. When he did the urine test at urgent care (I went there because of the time of day and because I am out of the tree regular doctor visits that my insurance will cover, yet they have unlimited urgent care visits) he had a full cup, but the doctor said he has phimosis and he will need surgery. I will take him of course to the pediatrician and pediatric urinologist but am hoping to God that things can wait til January 1st. Dont think I am a terrible parent. We were in foreclosure last year and hanging on by a thread even now. I just want to know how to tell if it is urgent enough that emergency care is needed. He stopped having discomfort later it wasn t all the time otherwise I would be rushing to a hospital and of course would if he could could not urinate at all, as I said he did at least a cup last time. I just want to see if I can care for him safely until the beginning of January.

Yesterday and this morning my baby boy (2ys. old) had a fever. We gave him a fever reducer and now about 5 hours later he s freezing with the chills. What could be going on? Should I take him to the ER or should I just schedule and appointment with his doctor?
