When should I call the doctor about my child's stomachache?

ANSWER

If your child’s stomachache comes on really quickly, or if it won’t go away, check in with the pediatrician. His doctor will especially want to know if your child has other symptoms, such as:

  • Vomiting
  • Fever of 100.4 or higher
  • Headache
  • Sore throat
  • Diarrhea that lasts a few days or more
