Patient :My 4 year old threw up today In the afternoon with his grandmother while I was at work I didn't find out until 6pm when I got out by then his cheeks were hot and bright red he had a fever of 100.2 he was very tired and did not want to drink or eat. His temp in the last 4 hours has gone down to 96.4 and back up to 99. I have not giving him any medicine. I did notice a bug bite on his side. He is asleep now his cheeks are bright red and hot still. Should I take him to see someone tonight?
