(HealthDay News) -- If your child has a fever, it's sometimes difficult to decide whether to call a doctor.
According to Yale-New Haven Children's Hospital, you should call the pediatrician:
If your child has a fever of 100.4 degrees Fahrenheit or higher and she
is younger than three months old.
If your child's fever has persisted for more than 48 hours.
If your child will not stop crying, seems very pale, or has mottled skin.
If your child seems dehydrated and you can't get her to eat or drink.
If she has significant pain in the ear or elsewhere, or if she has painful urination.
