Lil B’s allergy to suppository

@ 1 year 2 months 4 weeks 2 days

This happened back in November 2010 (he was 10 months then) when both Ryan and subsequently Lil B were down with Herpangina (viral mouth ulcers). Being older, it was easier to manage Ryan. Lil B was a handful then. Not to mention his allergy of suppository made the situation even more tense especially when his fever spiked up to 39.6C.

Unable to take on suppository, paed’s advise was for us to feed Paracetamol and Nurofen alternately at the interval of 4 hours. Coupled with continuous sponging, we managed to get lil B’s fever under control. My poor baby……….I still remeber I had to syringe fed him milk for like 3 -4 days.

****This is a reminder never to adminiter SUPPOSITORY to lil B****

  1. oh dear..poor lil B. come he is allergic to suppository but can take fever meds? could it be the ingredients in the suppository like voteron?

  2. Sorry, I just saw this. Poor you – that must have been a really tough month!

    I have the same question as barbara too because paracetamol is the main ingredient of suppositories. How come he can’t take them but is ok with meds?

    Btw, I keep a bottle of Nurofen (ibuprofen) on standby because sometimes, my boy doesn’t respond well to paracetamol. Ibuprofen is a stronger type of drug, though, so I only use it for *emergencies*.
