Pain Relief - Children

Description

There are many different types of pain. Our pharmacist will help you choose the right pain-killer for your child.

Our Advice
  • Give paracetamol to relieve pain and fever particularly after vaccination.
  • Do not give painkillers regularly unless under the supervision of your child's doctor.
  • Combining different painkillers can cause overdose. Ask your pharmacist for advice.
  • Keep to the recommended dose and read the information on the label carefully.
  • Extra doses do not give more effective pain relief.
  • Reducing fever in a child can be helped by a cool bath.
  • If your child has a fever or pain which is not controlled by paracetamol, ask our pharmacist for advice.
