Re: When to go to the doctor for a cough

I took my oldest DD in for a prolonged cough because at that point something was wrong, but don't usually take them in for coughs in general. Fever and cough, yes, maybe.

As a working parent, I tend to take them in sooner than later because if it's something treatable, I need to treat it and move on with life. If I stayed home, I would ride it out at home. I was at the walk in with both girls this morning and wished nothing more than to be able to be a stay at home parent at that moment.
