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.
