HEADACHE

Unlike adults, headaches in children are different, making it difficult for you or the paediatrician to diagnose. In children, headaches occur for a short time and cause nausea or vomiting. A child may appear restless or pale while experiencing a headache.37

WHAT CAUSES HEADACHE IN CHILDREN AND BABIES?37
Several reasons can contribute to your child’s headaches such as:

  • Skipped meals
  • Sports may cause dehydration and low blood sugar levels resulting in headache
  • Emotional ups and downs: your child may face some problem in school which he/she has not confided in you

WHAT ARE THE STEPS TO HELP YOUR CHILD THROUGH A HEADACHE OR MIGRAINE ATTACK?37

  • Put them to sleep in a dark room, sleep helps in their recovery
  • Use a moist cloth and put it on their eyes and forehead
  • Ask them to breathe deeply
  • Keep them hydrated and feed your baby with some healthy food
  • Do not allow them to drink anything containing caffeine

Brufen® is very effective to relieve the headaches. Now that you have a paediatric formula of Brufen® available, that is even easy to administer; it will give quick relief to your child.10,11
