Patient :My 11 year old son has been fighting a bad cough for a week. Its worse at night and keeps him awake. Last night he said he woke up sweating (didnt have any blankets on at this time) and felt sick to his stomach. He didnt have an appetite yesterday. Should he been seen by a doctor or should I hold off and let this run its course?
Symptoms: Cough, fever, loss of appetite, upset stomach
