Kawasaki disease

I have a 6 month old son who has one eye that is irritated, red and glassy. There is no discharge coming from his eye. The doctor said it was nothing. I read the symptoms of Kawasaki disease and became concerned. He has been running 100 - 100.4 fever for 5 days consistently. I noticed some red bumps on his abdomen today. He has also been fussy for about 5 days. I don't know if I should be worried or take him to another doctor.

I suggest you consult a pediatric cardiologist. If none are available in your community, consult a regular cardiologist. Act now.
