Should I be concerned about cold clamy skin??

Hi ladies sorry but I'm really concerned about my LB. I've just put my son to bed and he's got cold clamy forehead and back of neck. He is teething but I didn't think cold clamy skin was a symptom. Took his temperature and it was 36. He has been irritable, whiney for over a week. Cries and wants to be picked up all the time. Hasn't been finishing his bottles. Last night he was up every 1-2 hours and his poo has changed colour to light yellow. It was dark green because of his formula. Should I be concerned? Should I get him checked out? Or am I over reacting? Tia x

If you feel like something is right id ring 111 and see what they say xx

I would rake him to out of hours centre or ring 111. It may be nothing, but babies can get ill very fast and you will never be in trouble for getting him checked out. Hope he's ok

How old is he, he sounds under 6 months so I would take him to the doctor

Cold and clammy can be a symptom of hypoglycaemia. I'd get him checked out especially if he's not been eating as much as usual.
