Pediatric Care Q & A

What is considered an urgent pediatric medical matter?

As a parent, you may wonder if your child’s illness is urgent or something that can wait. If your child has a high fever, has been having diarrhea or vomiting for a few hours, or has a cold that’s lasted more than 10 days, it’s probably time to see the doctor.

The child-friendly team at Forest Urgent Care is open seven days a week and welcomes walk-in visits to help your child feel better quickly.

Some of the most common reasons parents bring their child to Forest Urgent Care include:

  • Asthma and allergies
  • Skin rash
  • Ear infections
  • Urinary tract infection (UTI)
  • Injury, such as a cut, sprain, or broken bone
  • Pink eye or sore throat

Forest Urgent Care can also remove warts.
