Choosing a medicine for your children
Medicines for Children
As the winter months approach, so do the seasonal coughs and colds. For parents of young children, this can be a particularly difficult time. Sore throats can be caused by a cold or the flus and the dryness and soreness may occur a day or two before the cold1. One way you can get a head start on the common cold is to ensure that you've got a good stock of essential medicine to help them through their illness.
A key ingredient in any parent's first aid kit is a liquid Paracetamol such as Calpol2. The sweet tasting liquid makes it easier to get your child to take their medicine and is much better than trying to get them to swallow tablets. Calpol Child Treatments provide all the pain relieving and temperature reducing benefits of Paracetamol. Specific Calpol products can also be taken for teething issues in younger developing babies.

There are a wide range of products available, specially tailored to the age of the child and the required dosage. The Fastmelts and Six Plus Suspension are not suitable for children under six and as they contain Paracetamol, they should not be given with any other Paracetamol containing products3. Visit Calpol's website for full information http://www.calpol.co.uk
Bottles of Calpol to keep at home and sachets to take with you on trips away means that even when traveling, you don’t need to track down some medicine for your children in an unfamiliar location. So to ensure you are prepared for the inevitable childhood bugs, make sure you take a trip to your local chemist or supermarket to stock up on Calpol, before the need strikes.
