What causes pain in chest?

My 4 year old daughter has had red cheeks today. Around dinner she was complaining that her chest hurt. She says it feels like wood is in there. She does not have a fever and her pulse seems to be normal. What is this, and do I need to take her to the ER?

Hi,

This can suggest a viral prodrome. Sometimes rash and body aches precedes fever. If she is otherwise active and playful, nothing to worry. Just give paracetamol three times a day for 2-3 days.

This will help chest pain, and fever incase it appears. You need to take her to doctor if the pain increases, other symptoms adds up or fever persists beyond 3 days.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Take care

Regards,
