Winter brings with it a flurry of sniffles, sneezes, and fevers among kids. As you’re out and about with your little ones, it’s crucial to be equipped for any sudden onset of pain or fever.

Here are three top tips to help your children with pain and fever relief this winter:

#1 Keep a supply of Panado® Paediatric Syrup sachets handy

Panado® Paediatric Syrup sachets are a convenient option for pain and fever relief in children. The active ingredient is paracetamol, which is known to be safe for use in both infants and children.1

The sachets are easy to carry with you wherever you go, making it easy to give your child relief when they need it most.  Make sure to follow the recommended dosage instructions on the package and consult your healthcare provider if your child’s symptoms persist.

Always administer using a medicine measure or a syringe. Do not exceed the recommended dose.  Dosage details can be found at https://panado.co.za/dosage-calculator/ and are calculated according to your child’s age and weight.  Add in your child’s age and weight, and our calculator will automatically calculate how much paracetamol you should give your child, and which product is best suited for your child.

#2 Dress your child in comfortable layers

When your child has a fever, it’s important to keep them comfortable. Dressing them in layers and lightweight fabrics, allows you to adjust their clothing as needed to maintain a comfortable body temperature.2  Opt for breathable fabrics such as cotton, and avoid heavy blankets or clothing that could cause overheating.

#3 Encourage rest and hydration

Rest and hydration are essential when your child is feeling unwell. Encourage your child to drink plenty of fluids, such as water or diluted fruit juice, to help them stay hydrated.3

With these three top tips, you can help your little ones stay comfortable and manage pain and fever relief this winter.  Remember to always consult your healthcare provider if you have any concerns about your child’s health.
