When ds had Chicken pox on top of scarlet fever and was in hospital the nurse on the childrens ward was going to give him nurofen. I had fortunately read that you shouldn't so reminded her. She had to google! It should be more well known.

Same my son was hospitalized with chicken pox and the nurse tried to give him ibuprofen, I asked her not to as I'd read not to, she didn't believe me 😯
