Pediatrician 's  Response
dear parent I am reading this question at 10.18 IST. That means 7th day of fever. 3 year old children can be divided into ordinary fevers and serious fevers. How to differentiate. There are 3 easy steps. Measure the temperature. If it is more than 104 degree farenheit, it means is high grade and you have to review with the doctor. Second step is to observe the response to paracetamol. After giving paracetamol two things should happen. The temperature should come down and the childs activity should go up. If these two things happen means, then this is ordinar fever. There are 10 issues which you can see with your naked eyes and proceed. Eye yellow discolouration, ear pain, neck glands, mouth ulcers, skin rashes, joint swellings, yellow or green colour vomiting, brown colour urine/ painful urination and finally blood in the stools. As regards to cough, mild cough dry cough which does not distrurb the child need not be taken serious.
Regarding the pulse in the neck going fast is a normal event.
