Health tips for children



Children and Drug Reactions


It is possible for your child to have a reaction to any medication that he takes, including over the counter medicines.
To help prevent drug reactions, you should not medicate your child unnecessarily (especially overusing antibiotics for viral illnesses).
Adverse reactions or side effects to taking medications can include allergic reactions, with hives, wheezing, and or difficulty swallowing (activate your emergency services immediately), or your child may have a non-allergic reaction, including vomiting, irritability, lethargy, or diarrhea.
Consult your doctor if you think that your child is having a drug reaction.
