Q.

Tenston syrup

Hi there, I have my 2 yrs old getting her molars and in lots of pain and fever, she' s eating and drinking well, but the fever comes and goes, is it ok to give her tenston syrup, or is the Ponsten the best, I used empaped supository' s but she doesn' t give me a chance to put it in she literally runs away. Why does teething make them so sick?

The best way to deal with this teething discomfort is to apply Pansoral gel to her gums where the teeth are coming through. Also give her Calpol or Panado syrup if she still seems to have pain.
