Children's Advil Review

Children's Advil Review

We have another outbreak in my house again. Just to remind everyone I have 4 children ages 8, 6, 2 and 3 months old. My oldest came home last week from school not feeling so good with a fever.  I was lucky that I had just received my kit from Advil to review because I really needed it. Eric temp 99.8 so I gave him the recommend dose of Advil. I sent him to bed and called his doctor. I made him a appointment for the following day. So the next day we visited the doctor and she that he probably has flu that's going around. She also recommended giving him Advil. I told her that's what I have been giving him. She said to watch his temp and let the flu run it course. By the end of the week a three boys where sick and my Advil samples came in handy. The boys really enjoyed the test of Advil and know one fault me on taking it so we will defiantly keep a bottle in the house.

Advil has provided some great tips for our readers.

According to two new national surveys of parents and pediatricians from the makers of Children’s Advil®, more than half of all parents report feeling anxious, fearful or helpless when their child comes down with a fever. In addition, these surveys also found that many parents are not managing the fever correctly. This is nothing new to the vast majority of pediatricians (94 percent) who believe that parents need more fever management education.
In an effort to ease parents’ anxiety and minimize risks, Children’s Advil® has partnered with nationally recognized pediatrician, Alanna Levine, M.D., to introduce a fever relief program this cold and flu season to educate parents on common misperceptions and best practices when it comes to treating a child’s fever.

Fever Relief Tips
To help better prepare for fevers during cold and flu season, Dr. Alanna Levine and the makers of Children’s Advil® recommend the following tips to parents:

-   Stay Cool:  Remember that most fevers are in fact indicators that the body is fighting an underlying illness.

-   Be Prepared: Start the season by talking to a pediatrician about proper fever management.  Also, check the medicine cabinet to ensure that all medications have not expired or been recalled.

-   Watch for Serious Signs:  Generally, it’s time to call a pediatrician:
·         if your child is less than three months old and has a fever of 100 degrees or higher
·         if the fever is over 103 degrees, no matter what the child’s age;
·         if the fever lasts more than three days;
·         if your child has a fever and looks and acts very sick;
·         if you are concerned regarding your child’s health.

-   Long Lasting Relief: When choosing a fever medication, be sure to consider how long the medication will last.  Children’s Advil®®, which contains ibuprofen, provides up to 8-hours of relief with one dose.
