Safe Use of Pain Relief for Children

  • If your child is unwell, or has a fever - make sure you read the label when giving pain relief
  • If they need medicine for more than 3 days – contact your doctor or pharmacist
  • Check the dose – giving more medicine than they need can be harmful

Keep your child safe
