Not very long ago my little boy began to run a very high fever all of a sudden; it was 102.8. I immediately called his doctor and asked the nurse if I could bring him in. She was obviously busy and very rudely told me that I was overreacting. His temperature was only from teething, she informed me.
I felt like an idiot after I spoke with this lady and took her advice. However, when his fever shot up even higher, followed by a very obvious petechial rash days later, I took him to the emergency room. There was a face rash as well as a rash all over his little body.
He had scarlet fever, which can be quite serious if left untreated. I felt even worse for listening to the nurse who was just too busy to give good advice or see another sick infant that day.
