As the school year and activities commence each fall, One Pediatrics’ practices brace for an increase in sick patients while continuing to provide preventive care, medication management, and sports physicals. This return to academic demands, busy schedules, and constant social interaction can also affect behavioral wellness. Your providers at All Star Pediatrics, East Louisville Pediatrics, Prospect Pediatrics, South Louisville Pediatrics, and Springs Pediatrics are ready and willing to address every patient’s unique needs.
Children and parents are encouraged to wear masks during sick appointments to reduce the spread of viruses and keep healthy patients healthy. Please follow any instructions given by your pediatrician’s office before and during appointments.
Children are less likely to develop a severe infection from Covid-19, though Covid is still prevalent along with flu, RSV, strep and common colds. Close proximity in schools and holiday travel increase the likelihood of illness spreading. If your child has symptoms of illness, please call your doctor’s office and we will provide next steps for testing and management.
Examples of when to see us:
- Any fever (>100.4F) in an infant less than 2 months old
- Fever above 100.4F for more than 3 days in patients of any age
- Respiratory distress including barking, dry, or gravelly cough; increased effort to breath
- Sore throat, with or without sores or discoloration
- Signs of dehydration (no tears when crying, dark yellow or strong-smelling urine)
- Ear pain for more than 2 days in children older than 2 years, or with fever in those under 2
- Gastrointestinal upset, including persistent vomiting and/or diarrhea
In addition to physical discomfort, One Pediatrics providers are prepared to address new or worsening emotional distress. We understand our patients experience a rollercoaster of mental changes throughout childhood and adolescence, and we take their needs seriously. Our “Healthy Living Blog” on this site provides several articles on behavioral health that you may find helpful.
As always, call us if you have any questions or concerns. We are deeply invested in your child’s physical and mental well-being.
