Pain Relief for Children

Childhood fever is very common. Children often have a raised temperature when they suffer from a cold, if they have an ear infection, or when they are teething. A slightly raised temperature can easily be treated at home with cooling strips.

Cooling strips bring immediate relief to a feverish child and are safe to use with other medication, such as infant paracetamol or ibuprofen. You can also use cooling strips to provide pain relief if your child has a headache. A fever can be symptomatic of a serious illness, so always seek medical advice if your child has a raised temperature that doesn’t respond to over-the-counter medication.
