Need some advice please

my grandson is three and has had a cough for about six weeks 

which won't go 

last Monday he started to vomit we thought it was a bug , Tuesday night was sick again and again first thing Wednesday morning 

Thursday he temperature went up but came down with calpol 

over the last few days his breathing has been a problem and although this inhaler has helped a bit but only a bit 

he was also sick again last night , and when he wakes he complains he's tired 

he's not eating very much and now has a temperature but cold hands and feet , should we wait till tomorrow to see a doctor or try and see someone now

    I would always ere on the side of caution with one so young there are too many things to be concerned about......I would seek medical attention asap.

    Hope all goe well for you and your family.
