It’s true: Babies don’t come with manuals. So, if your baby spikes a fever and appears to be in pain, it’s natural for even the calmest of parents to panic. Figuring out which health aids or pain medicine to give your child when they’re feeling ill can be daunting, but now, thanks to a new product from Panado, parents can have peace of mind when treating their child. When your baby or infant has pain and fever, parents can turn to the recently launched and conveniently packaged Panado Paediatric Syrup, Peppermint in convenient, single-serving 5 ml Sachets.

There are a multitude of ways to treat pain and fever when your child is feeling under the weather, but first, it’s important to recognise the symptoms and consult with your child’s GP before treating the symptoms at home with the over-the-counter health aids.

What is fever and is it dangerous to children?

According to experts, fever is defined as a body temperature of > (more than/equal to) 38 degrees C. As strange as it may seem, fevers can be a good thing. A fever is your child’s body’s way of fighting off infections and helping speed up recovery.


What causes pain and fever in children?

Viral infections are common in infants and children, and most are not serious, including the common cold and a sore throat.
Teething can be uncomfortable for young children as the tooth cuts through the gums, while in older children, cavities may also cause toothache. Childhood vaccinations can also cause fever and local reactions (pain, swelling and redness).

Headaches are common in children, affecting up to 75% of school-aged children, and are commonly caused by viral or an upper respiratory tract infection.
