List of medications...

Hello Doc, welcome back...
A lady at work and I discussed what the best medications are for us to use on our kids, both our daughters are 3 and sons are 1...
Could you please share in your experience what works best for:
Best cough meds:
Best fever meds:
Best pain meds:
Best teething meds:
Best blocked nose remedy:
Best bruise remedy:
Best Nausea/vomit:
Best cold meds:

Think that covers most of it....

Thank you so much for your input, time and effort!!!

Thank you.Cough medicines are no longer recommended for children.For fever and pain paracetamol is safest so Panado or Calpol syrup, always in the correct dose.Teething is best treated by a teething gel such as Pansoral.The best cold and blocked nose med and the safest,is salins nose drops or spray.Best bruise treatment is usually to use Arnica. Nausea and vomiting always depends on the cause. If it is due to gastro then use an electrolyte solution such as Rehidat as first line treatment.
