When to Keep your Child Home
If you are not sure when to bring your child in for therapy to keep him/her home, here is a list of things to check:
You should stay home if:
- He/she had any vomiting or diarrhea through the night or in the morning.
- Any fever (temperature above 37.0C or 98.6F). This may indicate an active infection.
- Ear ache or any drainage from the ear. Your child should see a doctor that day.
- Eye irritations, particularly with yellow discharge or redness. It could be “pink eye” which is contagious.
- A runny nose, especially with thick mucous.
- Untreated head lice. Your child should stay at home until treated with special shampoo or rinse.
- Rashes. Only the doctor can diagnose - please check it out.
- Stomach aches or head aches. Keep your child home for observation. If they happen often, discuss with your doctor.
- Sore throat. Usually can spread infection.
- Continuous cough or night cough.
- Toothaches. Your child should be seen by a dentist.
