As the cold and flu season continues, parents will undoubtedly have a child who comes home from school with a slight fever and the sniffles. Treating these symptoms with cough and cold medications will help to ease your child’s discomfort and possibly lessen the severity of the cold. The Online Drugstore has many popular brands of children’s cough and cold medicines available at low prices. Parents should not give their children adult-formula medications as they may be too strong for developing immune systems, particularly in young children. These medications are specially formulated for children and will serve as temporary relief from the nasty effects of colds. As parents know, many children do not like taking medicines. Children’s medicines are available in flavors such as cherry and berry to make taking the medication a more positive experience. The same rules apply for giving medicine to children that parents follow; never exceed the recommended daily dosages and if symptoms persist, you should take your child to his pediatrician.
