When your little one has a fever, it can be quite scary! One of the toughest fever experiences we have dealt with was with E when she was an infant. She had a fever that just wouldn’t go down and no matter what I did to try to soothe her, she was clearly in pain. She was restless, cried out and even screamed at times. It broke my heart to see her that way and I felt helpless. I’m glad there are trusted products out there like FeverAll Acetaminophen Suppositories to help reduce a fever and relieve some of those minor aches and pain in infants and children.
Acetaminophen is one of the most recommended non-prescription medications by healthcare professionals for temporary fever reduction and relief of minor aches and pain in infants and children. FeverAll is the only national brand of acetaminophen in suppository form and is available in three strengths for children from 6 months to 12 years of age.
So why choose FeverAll Acetaminophen Suppositories? They permit the administration of fever and pain relieving medicine to children who cannot take medication by mouth due to illness, vomiting, fussiness or for those who don’t like taking liquid medication. They provide an accurate dosage of acetaminophen without measuring or causing a mess. I think a lot of us can relate to having infants and toddlers who will refuse to take liquid medication. Acetaminophen Suppositories are a quick and easy solution to that problem.
Here are some FeverAll Fever Ready Facts that you may already be aware of and if not, you might find interesting:
- According to the American Academy of Pediatrics, fever in babies begins at 100.4 degrees Fahrenheit. Of course, call your physician about any concerns with fever in your child.
- Using a digital rectal thermometer will provide the most accurate reading of a baby’s temperature.
- Be prepared! Make sure you have acetaminophen in both liquid and suppository forms on-hand. In the event your child is unable or unwilling to swallow oral medication (tight lipped, vomiting), an acetaminophen suppository is a safe alternative to the liquid form and always provides an accurate dose with no mess.
- Just because your child feels warm doesn’t mean they have a fever. Caregivers can overdress babies, even in colder weather, which can actually make them hot and fussy. Always confirm with a rectal temperature reading before administering any fever-reducing medication.
- When dealing with fever, how your child looks is as important as the child’s temperature.
- Fever isn’t something to fear. It simply means the body is doing its natural job of fighting off an infection.
- Contact your pediatrician with any questions about your children’s fever, particularly if your child is younger than six months of age.
You may be wondering what else you can do to help relieve or ease your sick child. Here are some tips for soothing your little one:
