My son is 3 years old and just started school

My son is 3 years old and just started school this month. Last weekend Sept 14&15th he had what we thought was just a cold running nose and cough with a slight fever only at night. We took him to the local clinic Monday the 17th and with him being incorporative he was prescribed cough syrup and an antibiotic azithromycin 4mls for one day he was kept home from school Monday and Tuesday. He seemed like he was getting better. But today Sunday 9-23 he wakes up coughing like he can’t stop and this continues on all day. I gave him the cough syrup prescribed about 10am, some children’s musinex about 4pm he took a nap and woke up about 6pm again by a coughing fit. Should I take him into the emergency room?

hi my son was scheduled to have his last booster of dtap when he was 4 years old along with 5 other shots and he is now 5 started school and he will not be able to return to school because his records show he had it ordered but never had it and I was told there was no way of knowing if he has had it. If I have him have the shot now will this hurt him if he has already had it?

I have a thirteen year old son who is normally a really well mannered child. I don t put a lot of pressure on him except the usual go to school, do your homework and put your clothes away. Today he skipped school and lied to me about it. He didn t come home until nearly 5:30pm. He just kept lying and lying and I kept catching him in his lies. He says this is his first time but I am thinking it is not. He s just different. Please can someone give me advice on how to handle this?

My 5 year old son started being sick at school at 1100 this morning, he is drinking fluids but bringing them back up, where there is nothing left he is now brining up bile. He is very sleepy and says his head hurts and points between his eyes. Is this common for a bug he has picked up at school?
